From the heart of Banaras!

‘Varanasi’ or ‘Banaras’ or ‘Kashi’, the spiritual heart of India and the oldest living city of the world. It dates back to 2000 BCE. Also considered the holiest of the seven sacred cities in Hinduism, devout Hindus believe that if you die here, you will attain salvation. This is the ideal place to witness the cycle of life and death. The streets bustling with life and alive with everyday wanderings while the ghats behold a sight of funeral pyres and ashes, last rites and end of life.

It is fascinating and shocking at the same time. Packed with intensity and extremes, Varanasi has become a thriving destination for tourists from all over the world. It is here, where one can experience the true essence of India. It’s culture, religions and caste system, customs and beliefs are deeply rooted in this city.

A glance at this mystical city, and it is impossible to ignore the charm…
