We started our second day with heading towards sarnath temple which is approximately 10 kms from our hotel and took us half hour to reach. We reached there arnd 11 ..the temple is closed from 11 am to 1 for lunch..wo we could not go inside..but we visited the entire temple premises which is a holy place for Buddhist and jain pilgrims.we hired a guide who I must warn you is a scam as they don't explain you anything and their only motive is that the tourist should buy a banarasee saree..which usually are of inferior quality as my mother was duped last time she had visited sarnath...after the visit we went to assi ghat..the ghat is not as well kept as the dashashwamedh ghat. . but we spent some time on the ghat where we saw the locals making music , artist making beautiful sketches of the ghat sadhus playing musical instruments, children playing cricket as the sun set on the holy ganges river .in the evening we had our train back to Delhi..it was a short trip to Varanasi but had been on my bucket list for a really long time but this city has somehow stuck in my head ..it is a city that would awaken you spiritually as well as holistically. its a place fill with history,faith, diverse religious places,colors, delicious street food,a shopping heaven for women and lastly it places where people believe that if u die in kashi u would go to heaven ..but what they don't realize the place is heaven itself ...I am coming back here for sure!
