Varanasi, also known as Banaras or Kashi is located on the left bank of the River Ganges. It is one of the seven sacred cities of India and believed to be one of the oldest cities in the world which holds religious and spiritual values. This city draws millions of Hindu pilgrims as well as tourists every year, to bathe in its sacred waters of the River Ganges to seek liberation and also to perform funeral rites for their loved ones. Along the city's winding streets you will find a temple in every nook and corner, including the main temple - Kashi Vishwanath dedicated to Lord Shiva. Varanasi has something to offer to everyone; whether your wanting to indulge in the mystic science of spirituality, learn classical Indian dance, music or art, digging into some of the yummiest street food or just getting lost into the narrow streets of the city.
