This was the best route and I suggested that best timing to travel from Varanasi to Gaya start in morning and total travel time just 5 to 6 hours. Road was good this was NH 2 from Delhi to Kolkata and after 30 km from Aurangabad turn left to Gaya. Road from Aurangabad to Gaya is single road but road is good.

It was a short flight (about half an hour). I booked my ticket on reward points. However, it was not reflecting on Air India's system hence they took almost 45 minutes to issue me the boarding pass which was making me quite nervous. However, finally I got the ticket but as the flight got delayed, I missed the Evening Arati on Ganges in Varanasi. Recommend people to take an earlier flight.

As Jodhpur Howrah express is a very good train regarding all things like it always comes on time and it is a superfast train. So you won’t have to wait more for reaching your destination. Accommodation of the train was good, all berths were in good condition, and sight view was nice. I would like to recommend you guys to eat chat in Gadholia near to Kashi Ghat, it was very tasty.

Toilet condition was good, train staff were always there for you regarding off breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Varanasi is also famous as Benares, Banaras or Kashi. This sacred city is located on the banks of the Ganges (Ganga) in Uttar Pradesh state. The city is located at 320 kilometres southeast part of the state capital, Lucknow. Total distance between Varanasi to Gaya is 262 km. However, the best way to travel from Varanasi to Gaya is by bus, a journey of almost 3 hour 40 minutes. You can easily find ATM, hospitals, dhabas and various petrol pumps during the journey from Varanasi to Gaya. Gaya city does not have its own railway station.
