Varanasi or Kashi or Benaras...many names one divine feel. It is considered as one of the oldest cities of the world. Situated at the bank of river Ganga, Varanasi is also known for its heritage in music, art, culture, religion and literature. Very famous temple of lord Shiva- Kashi Vishwanath makes this city the ultimate pilgrimage spot for hindus for ages.
We only had a day to explore..and wanted to make the most of it. so, we got up early and went straight to the ghat area. There we had holy bath in river Ganga.
Everything in Benaras has its own charm. Like,
बनारस की गलियां
बनारस के घाट
बनारस के पान
बनारस की चाट
So, after taking the holy dip we headed straight to explore बनारस की गलियां. Its like a huge maze full of secrets.
We wandered for around 3-4 hrs, just hopping from one ghat to another, tasting food delicacies including बनारसी पान और बनारस की चाट.
Also dont forget to drink the "Baba lassi" which is made using "Bhaang".
Get high on lassi and wander ! :D
