VARANASI

Discover the heritage city

DRIPPING WITH SPRITUALITY ON THE BANKS OF THE HOLY GANGES , VARANASI IS ONE OF THE OLDEST LIVING CITIES IN THE WORLD AND THE LAST STOP BEFORE NIRVANA.

Millions of people- sadhus, aged, and travelers throng the city of Lord Shiva in their search for spirituality on the ghats, in the myriad of alleys, and sometimes in death. Hindu festivals being one of the ideal times to explore Varanasi , are best enjoyed with the special lassi and kachoris amidst the witty, amusing locals.
