The city of Temple, Ghats and Music

Welcome To Varanasi

One of the world’s oldest living cities, is called the religious capital of India.

There is no Indian attraction like Varanasi. There are no architectural splendours, no carving on palaces and forts, and yet the city has an inherent charm. Varanasi is situated on the west bank of the Ganges, also known as Banaras. We would say Banaras is not a city it’s a way of living. Every Devotee Hindu hopes to visit this holy city at least once in a lifetime for taking a holy dip in river Ganga.

There are total 88 Ghats in Varanasi. Once you start walk from Assi Ghat, you can easily cover all the ghats as all the Ghats are interconnected. The best time to visit the Ghats is at down, where pilgrims come for their early morning dip. Varanasi comes alive with magical lights, aromatic oils and crushed flowers, the keen scent of spices. Hindus and non- Hindus from around the world visit Varanasi for different reasons. Popularly known the city of Lord Shiva and Ganga, Varanasi is simultaneously the city of Temple, the city of Ghats, the city of music and the center for moksha ( salvation).

Varanasi has a lot to offer for the travellers – the boat ride at sunrise, the high banks of the ancient ghats, the Gentle water of river Ganga, the array of shrines, the Ashrams and the fragrance of incense.
