Steeped in tradition and mythological legacy, Kashi is the 'original ground' created by Shiva and Parwati, upon which they stood at the beginning of time. Varanasi is the microcosm of Hinduism, a city of traditional classical culture. Glorified by myth and legend and sanctified by religion, it has always attracted a large number of pilgrims and worshippers from times immemorial.

To be in Varanasi is an experience in itself… and experience in Self discovery … an ethereal oneness of the body and soul. To every visitor, Varanasi offers a breathtaking experience. The rays of the dawn shimmering across the Ganges… the high -banks, the temples and shrines, the ashrams and pavilions along the banks bathed in a golden hue… soul -stirring hymns and mantras along with the fragrance of incense filling the air… and, the refreshing dip in the holy waters gently splashing at the Ghats.

Varanasi - An Overview
Few Places In India Are As Colourful, Charismatic Or Spiritual As The Bathing Ghats Lining The Ganges In Varanasi. The City Of Shiva Is One Of The Holiest Places In India, Where Hindu Pilgrims Come To Wash Away A Lifetime Of Sins In The Ganges Or To Cremate Their Loved Ones. Varanasi, Previously Named Benares And Kashi (City Of Light) – It Was Renamed After The Varuna And Asi Rivers, Which Meet Here – Has Always Been An Auspicious Place To Die, Since Expiring Here Offers Moksha (liberation From The Cycle Of Birth And Death). The City Is The Beating Heart Of The Hindu Universe, A Crossing Place Between The Physical And Spiritual Worlds, And The Ganges Is Viewed As A River Of Salvation, An Everlasting Symbol Of Hope To Past, Present And Future Generations. The Magical But Sometimes Overwhelming City Is Where The Most Intimate Rituals Of Life And Death Take Place In Public On The City’s Ghats. The Accessibility To The Practices Of An Ancient But Still Living Religious Tradition Is What Captivates Many Visitors, And A Walk Along The Ghats Or A Boat Ride On The River Is One Of India’s Most Absorbing Experiences.
