“Varanasi!! The place where people want to die,
Where people come to wash off their sin,
Where one purifies its body, mind and soul
Varanasi! The place where every speck is divine!!"
Varanasi/Kashi is considered to be the oldest city in the world. It is said to be the abode of Lord Shiva and Parvati and Hindu’s believe that a person who breath his/her last here is suppose to attain salvation. It is also considered to be one of the backpacker destinations of India since it is associated with spiritualism, yoga and Sanskrit and so many people from within India and across the country come here seeking for these things. After hearing a lot about this place I decided to spend my New year's eve at Varanasi. I reached Varanasi on 30th December around 8PM from New Delhi.
