Varanasi It is said that the holy city of Varanasi was created by Lord shiva, the cosmic Lord. Varanasi has always been a popular centre for learning and civilization, and the place is specially sacred for the Hindus. Because of the heritage attached to the city, Varanasi has become a popular tourism destination and therefore it boasts of presence of large variety of cuisines as well as a good range of handicrafts, specially silk.

The river Ganga is the most important attraction of Varanasi and the Ghats on the southern bank of it attract the most of the crowds including the devotees as well as the tourists. The devotees perform their holy rituals on the Ghats in the belief that they'd get eternal salvation. You can either choose to mingle with the crowds on these Ghats or alternatively go on a cruise to get a panoramic view of what's happening on the Ghats.
