With thousands of sacred shrines and temples that are speckled around a 4-kilometre stretch leading down to the holy Ganges River, Varansi is truly something to behold. Bright neon saris, assertive hawkers and cow-filled streets make this a busy landscape, but adventurous souls are rewarded with cultural gifts that are sure to a make a memorable Varanasi holiday. In a country known for its low prices, you can choose to stay in chic guesthouses or luxury Varanasi hotels without breaking the bank.
At sunrise, take a walk down the ghats (steps) that border the river to witness thousands of pilgrims praying, bathing or scattering ashes. The southern end of the Ganges is where worshipers perform rituals for Shiva Lingam, while the central areas are a popular launching point for boats.
Visit the most popular temple in the city, the Vishwanath Temple, to see its gold-plated tower and pay homage to Shiva. For more physical activities, om your way through a yoga class, indulge in a relaxing Ayurvedic treatment or unwind in the calmer surroundings of the nearby Nehru Park. And don’t forget to try the delicious cuisine. Foodies are spoilt for choice with the large selection of Indian dishes on offer. Be sure to devour Varanasi delights like mango lassi, tomato chat and creamy chickpea curries.
Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport is located 24 kilometres north of the town. Trains depart from Varanasi Junction Train Station, while the adjacent bus station is where you'll find bus services to hubs throughout India.
