One of the most colourful and indiscreet cities of India, Varanasi is one of the seven holiest cities for the Hindus. Also known as Kashi and Benaras, this place is known for its temples, ghats and the colourful people. The narrow alleys and crowded streets seem to be extremely blissful in spite of all the noise and chaos all around. People come here just to take a dip in the holy waters of the Ganges. Varanasi is also known as Uttar Kashi and is situated on the western banks of the Ganges. It is said that a dip in this river frees one from a lifetime of sins. People even say that death here is auspicious as people attain moksha if they die here. Some people also come here tp creamate their loved ones and the sound of the holy temple bells are really soothing music to the ears.
A restaurant, cafe, bookstore all in one. There are lotsa quaint little secrets you can find here. Always a thing or two you can buy, and the money would go towards charity. Owner Asri is extremely friendly and always with a smile. Go for their afternoon tea, their scones are fab! On certain days, they have tarot readings and in-house musicians. This was also the place DC played a gig at! And blew the crowd away!
