Apart from Kashi Biswanath Temple which is one of the major attraction point for offering Puja to Lord Shiva, ghats of Ganga is another major attraction where people watches the daily life of Varanasi. Sankat Mochan temple is also very popular for offering puja to Hanumanji. Within 3 days , how you will plan your schedule depends to you. There are certain people , who will only love to spend time beside river Ganga. I have spent more time on Ganga ghats. During first or second day, try to complete to offer puja to Kashi Biswanath temple, Sankat Mochan, Annapurna mandir and other temples where you want to.
