The city of Varanasi is one of the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world. Also known as Benaras and Kashi, the city is situated on the banks of Ganges river and is one of the holiest city in the country.
The culture of Varanasi is closely associated with the River Ganges and the river's religious importance. The city with its medieval labyrinthine layout has been a cultural and religious centre in North India for several thousand years. Varanasi is a city that will overload your senses. Expect your senses to be assaulted by the sounds and smells of thousands of people going about their lives, crowded streets filled with rickshaws and street sellers, the odd cow, Saddhus, mourners, pilgrims and everything you did not think existed. It a surreal experience and not for the fainthearted.
Varanasi The Ghats

These Ghats – which are literally flight of steps extending from one side of the city to another. While most of the Ghats are bathing Ghats, some are also used as cremation sites. Many Ghats are associated with legends or mythologies. A morning walk down the stretch will introduce you to the interesting facts of life in Varanasi.
