Varanasi is a city in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It dates back to the 11th century B.C. and is regarded as the spiritual capital of India. Therefore, Varanasi draws Hindu pilgrims who bathe in the river Ganges and perform funeral rites. Along the city’s winding streets are some 2,000 temples. These include Kashi Vishwanath, the “Golden Temple,” dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva.
Boat rides during dawn is perhaps one of the best things to do in Varanasi. Travelling along the Ganges River offers the unique and spiritual Varanasi experience. It takes you through former palaces situated close to the banks of river and offers panoramic views of the area.
Experiencing the river in this way will leave an unforgettable imprint on your heart. Above all, don’t be surprised to see pilgrims bathing and performing prayers in front of you. Therefore, you will understand why the river is revered all over the world.
A visit to Varanasi is incomplete without visiting some of the best temples of this city. While the small temples are used for daily prayers, the larger ones are associated with Hindu history and mythology. These places are visited by travellers in large numbers. In addition, to the religious association, they also reflect the architecture in India.
Finally, whatever you choose to do in Varanasi, it will be a unique and memorable experience of a lifetime, with a Guides4me guide, who will look after you and by the end of the trip you’ve made a best friend.
