About Travel to Varanasi
Varanasi is a city which receives a large number of visitors.The city has a permanent population of around 1.5 million compared to an estimated 7 million visitors in a typical year. The visitors aren’t for the most part tourists. Varanasi is city which is important particularly to Hindu’s who believe that dying in Varanasi is a way to leave the cycle of life and death. Varanasi is also important to Buddhists. The Lord Buddha is believed to have given his first sermon after enlightenment at nearby Saranath. The large number of Indian pilgrims makes Varanasi a chaotic place for a leisure traveller to visit, as do the frequent cremations and other religious observances which take place at the edge of the Ganges River at one of the many Ghats, which are wide flights of stairs descending to the river side. This is where the bodies are burnt before the remains are cast into the river. Varanasi is an intense experience and, for those willing to overcome the inconveniences and discomforts, a richly rewarding one.
Aside from Saranath, nearly all of Varanasi’s major tourist attractions are on the riverside, which makes a boat tour an excellent option for visitors to the city. The five things to make sure you see in Varanasi are:
- Ghats: The 88 Ghats are all different, and some are very old and feature some excellent architecture in the adjacent buildings.
- Ramnagar Fort: This mogul style fort on the banks of the Ganges was built in the 18th Century.
- Alamgir Mosque: Another riverside building which was built in the 17th Century and has an intriguing blend of Muslim and Hindu architectural features.
- Jantar Mantar: 18th Century observatory close to the river.
- Kashi Vishwanath Temple: Dedicated to the Lord Shiva, the Kashi Vishwanath Temple is one of the most famous Hindu temples in India. The temple has been rebuilt a number of times over the last 1,000 years, and the temple that currently stands was completed in 1780.
