"Beautiful Banaras!"

  • Posted Oct 24, 2017
Loved the stay in Taj! Watched beautiful aarti but will advise everyone to carry water and food packet because it takes almost two to three hours on boat ride. Sarnath trip was awesome.

"The City as Old as History"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Oct 20, 2017
Varanasi is the religious centre of our country and tourists and devoteds from all around the world flocks in here to offer puja and prayer to God Viswanath and my Annapurna.
The serenity of the boat ride along the banks of Ganga, and the purity of Ganga Arti is sure to give you goosebumps and make you contemplative.
The only negative aspect of the city which disturbed me was the poor condition of the roads and the want of proper traffic system. The huge digs, unprepared culverts, smell of cow dung brings forth taunts and questions from the foreigners who come to visit the city to get a glimpse of our rich cultural heritage.
A little more campaign of Swatch Bharat Abhyans and installation of proper traffic controllers might do wonders to transform the city's grave plight.

"The beautiful Ghats !!! Wanna visit then again next time and fo the boat rides on a full moon night."

  • Posted Oct 15, 2017
Ghats are a must visit attraction in banaras. Kashivishwanath darshan and ganga aarti was a divine experience. Best time to visit ghats is early morning (sunrise) or sunset. BHU is worth the visit. All the temples are good. Sarnath is beautiful place and don't forget to buy lots and lots of beautiful and colorful banarasi sarees.

Must go during winter to enjoy the sun and cold. Experience the convergence of culture, history, nature and monuments. Enjoy the boat ride on the holy Ganges. Experience history in Sarnath. Taste the age old north Indian recipes. Seat to Ganga aarti.
