Call it 'Kaashi' Or 'Banaras' this place is truly a portrait of Hindu culture and traditions. It's way more than just the ghats and the Ganga. It's like an emotion which finds home in the heart of people residing here. The sound of mantras echoes all over the gullies to wake up the people before their alarms. The smell of 'kachori sabzi' and 'rabdi jalebi' tickles the nostrils of every tourist. You just can't miss out on the iconic 'Dal Baati Chokha' and the famous 'tamatar chaat' when here. Apart from the gold plated 'Vishwanath' temple, there are hundreds of small temples that dot the banks of the Ganges. This might be the place where people come for enlightenment and inspiration but it's quite easy to lose your way amidst the chaotic alleys. It has music in it's mornings, peace in the afternoons, marvellous taste in the evenings and togetherness in the nights. One can never stop describing the aura of 'Ganga Arti'. It's the culmination of all the doubts and beginnings of eternity. Just speak out the name of Banaras and you'll never need anything else!
