Welcome at "THE HOLY CITY VARANASI". Varanasi, or Banaras, (also known as Kashi) is one of the oldest living cities in the world. Varanasi`s Prominence in Hindu mythology is virtually unrivalled. Mark Twain, the English author and literateur, who was enthralled by the legend and sanctity of Banaras, once wrote : "Banaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together". 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, the land where experience and discovery reach the ultimate bliss. Varanasi is also renowned for its rich tapestry of music, arts, crafts and education. Some of the world- renowned exponents India has produced in these fields were schooled in the Varanasi tradition and origins.

The Ghats of Varanasi truly embody the real essence of this timeless city. As the first rays of the sun set the gently flowing Ganga afire, thousands of devout take the ceremonial dip and the Ghats come alive to people from all walks of life. Each performing rituals the way they were done, centuries ago. To a visitor it is a charming preview into the character of a holy city, unchanged, unspoiled by the vagaries of time.
