Varanasi

Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh

Enjoy a memorable experience with a visit to Varanasi, India's holiest city, home to hundreds of temples and a maze of lanes waiting to be explored.

The Famous Ghats

The ghats are the stepped terraces which lead down to the water's edge. Every morning they team with life as pilgrims are drawn to the river to perform their morning rituals and prayers. Or visit at sunset when the place offers a powerful atmospheric experience with the River Worship Ceremony

River Worship Ceremony

In the evening head out on the River Ganges for an amazing spectacle. See the priests perform prayers, the flaming torches accompanied by the heady smell of incense, followed by the sight of thousands of lamps floating on the Ganges in honour of the River Goddess.
