If you are ready to immerse your inner self into the spirituality, allure, and aestheticism of the world’s most ancient city, then welcome to Varanasi. The long stretches of river front bathing ghats, lined up with devotees washing away their innate sins make this city the holiest shrine for the Hindus. Alongside the sacred river of deliverance, Ganges, this city is the heart beat of Indian culture and age old traditions still reflected in its by lanes decked with reminiscences of the bygone era. Varanasi tourism also embarks upon these facets of the city full of religious abodes of attaining moksha.

The city of Varanasi beholds many told, untold stories of ancient Indian mythology in the form of temples and prehistoric edifices. It is also called as Benaras or Kashi and is said to be older than the legends too. The city has gifted many luminaries to the world in the field of art, music, and culture. The prominent places to visit in Varanasi are:

Kashi Vishwanath temple:

This splendid architectural marvel is dedicated to Lord Vishwanath, an incarnation of God Shiva. It houses one out of 12 Jyotirlingas which makes it an acclaimed Hindu shrine, in the city of Lord himself. The temple is also called Golden Temple due to the Golden spire, donated by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, decorating its crest. The temple has witnessed several Mughal invasions in the past and the current temple was constructed by Rani Ahilyabai Holkar of Indore in 1776. The view of flaming jyotirlinga is an auspicious sight for the pilgrims visiting it.

Durga temple:

This temple was built in the 18th century by a Bengali Maharani, showcases Nagara architectural style. It is also known as Monkey Temple due to the numerous monkeys who can be spotted in its vicinity. The presiding deity of this temple is Goddess Durga who is believed to protect this temple and city.

Sarnath:

This is the holy place where Lord Buddha is said to have preached his first sermon after his enlightenment in Bodhgaya. King Ashoka later on, built a stupa here along with the Ashoka Pillar with Ashoka Chakra which is also Indian National Emblem. Buddha Purnima is a major celebration here.

Ramnagar Fort:

This fort was built by the Maharaja of Benaras in 1750 AD on the right bank of Ganga River. This huge structure is magnificently built and has a museum exhibiting the antiquities of the erstwhile royals of this place. Its Dusshehra festival is a traditional event full of vivacity and hues of revelry.

Alamgir Mosque:

It was built by Aurangzeb, the Mughal Emperor. It majestically overlooks the Panchaganga Ghat and its architecture reflects a blend of Hindu and Persian styles.
