A spiritual delight

Varanasi is a spiritual delight where river of God's, Ganges greets you! It's a great enjoyment to go for Ganges cruising. It's ghats offer you tranquility and a solace from stressful living Sarnath is another attraction which offers you an opportunity to a great philosophy of eternity ie Nirvana. Place is full of greenery, nice hotels and food Kala Bhawan - department of indology in BHU is place where you must stop by to behold the rarest collections of art, culture and aesthetics. Roadside foods - thela foods are of great taste and flavour, may be its jalebi or samosa. Lavanglata is a local sweet much enjoyed by visitors.

Congested dirty chaotic polluted but spiritual city

Too congested, narrow roads, vehicular pollution and dust and garbage including cow dung is omnipresent Sarnath area is very good clean and well maintained probably because there is entry fee Efforts to keep ghaats clean under swachh bharat campaign are very visible and they are reasonably clean. Diesel engine driven boats and people bathing with soap, throwing stuff in Ganga, even Buffalo bathing and dead body burning next to ghaats creates pollution near the shore Ramnagar fort is in very bad shape and entry fee seems strange for such poorly maintained structure Ganga Aarti was spiritual and must watch once in Varanasi visit Durga temple, tulsi manas temple, sankatmochan hanuman temple are very small and can be covered in 5-10min each New kashi Vishwanath temple in bhu is well maintained and a good place to visit Main kashi Vishwanath temple is obviously very sought and followed religious place but it is very badly managed and structure is in shambles. Very small temple area and the way to temple is full of priests and shop keepers trying to fleece you with help of police men posted on duty. Nothing spiritual for these guys and the only thing which matters to them is Indian currency Varanasi can be covered well within 2night 3 days and I don't think its spiritual quotient or tourist quotient deserves a 2nd visit It is just a hyped heritage city.
