Varanasi Tourism Overview

About Varanasi

Blindingly colourful, bustling and whimsical are the few words which can describe Varanasi which serves as the most popular halts for the tourists. This distinct Indian city is situated on the shimmering banks of river Ganga which was once known as Kashi (City of Life) in history. It is one of the oldest inhibited cities which are counted one among the seven Hindu holy cities in India. The ghats of Varanasi uncover truths of life as on one side they witness the pilgrims washing away their sins in the scared waters while on the other they become the grounds of cremation. Varanasi is considered to be the most sacred place to die according to Hindu mythology. This place is said to offer moksha (liberation from the cycle of birth and death) making Varanasi a prominent place. The most intimate rituals of life and death are performed here making this place unique and magical.
