Varanasi Uttar Pradesh : Travel Blog

Counted among the seven holy cities related to Hinduism, 
Varanasi is a famous pilgrimage center as well as a beautiful tourist center, which is also known as Banaras and Kashi. 

Every tourist from the country and abroad has the desire to come to this place. 

Everyone wants to visit this place at least once in their life. 

Those who live around Kashi, such as me, reach their mind when they come to mind and return after several days resting in the midst of narrow streets, huge temples, ghats and popular places. 

While roaming on the ghats of Varanasi, you will find many such people who once came here and stayed here.

To be honest, at this place, sin, virtue, life, death, everything is like a festival, 

whose celebration in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city, 

everyone seems to be celebrating every occasion in their own tune. 

Many people also come to this city for liberation and purification and feel blessed after taking a dip in the holy waters of the Ganges. 

As beautiful as the present is of this city, there is a more mysterious past than that. 

The city has been a major site of culture, mythology, literature and art for centuries.

According to mythology, Varanasi came into existence when Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati got married. 

Later the Aryans settled here and promoted the trade of silk, muslin, ivory and perfumes etc.

There is no dearth of places to see and visit in this city situated on the banks of river Ganga.

 While living in this city, you can visit a dozen tourist places, 

but there is no answer to the satisfaction and comfort that comes in feeling this city by sitting on the ghats here.

Whenever you go to visit Banaras, first of all feel it i.e. pass through the narrow narrow streets here and taste the tea here. 

Then finally think about moving. 

There is a lot of liberation in this city which sometimes leaves us empty and sometimes completely free.

 Coming to this place, sitting on the ghats, taking a boat ride and the view of Ganga Aarti is very thrilling. 

This is the only place in the world where contemplation of life and death can be done in a very balanced way.

Kashi Vishwanath Temple, Alamgir Mosque, Assi Ghat, Dashashwamedh Ghat, Manikarnika Ghat, Tulsi Mansa Temple, 

Durga Temple, Ramnagar Fort and Museum, Chunar Fort, Varanasi Sarnath Temple, Banaras Silk Emporium, Godowalia Market are the places in this city whose One should never forget to visit here.

 Apart from these sites, Varanasi has Jantar-Mantar (observatory) on the other side of the river. 

There is also a new Vishwanath temple in the premises of Banaras Hindu University, 

a center of classical dance, music and religion and science education, which took 35 years to build from 1931 to 1966.
