Varanasi-Sarnath
"Varanasi is among the oldest living cities in the world and its antiquity finds place in ancient scriptures.
Located along the Ganga it is a sacred place for all Hindus, Jains and Buddhists."
  • A visit to this legendary city will be among the most moving trips you'll ever make.
  • Varanasi is believed to be the greatest tirth (pilgrimage) between earth and heaven. For a Hindu, to visit Varanasi and bathe in the water of Ganga, is to be cleansed of the sins of thousands of past rebirths.
  • The combination of Kashi- the holy city, Ganga the holy river and Lord Shiva- the Supreme God, makes Varanasi an immortal destination.
  • It is a crucible of religious, spiritual and academic thought and beliefs of Hindus, Buddhists and Jains. It has always been a great cultural centre notably in the field of learning, religion, philosophy, Yoga, Ayurveda, astrology, music, literature and spirituality.
  • Life on the ghats of the Ganga and the evening Ganga arti change the way you see the holy river.
  • The fabled Banarsi silk saree and carpets have made the city a big name in global markets.
  • A morning spent at the ghats and temples is a spiritually cleansing experience.
