Varanasi Tourism & Travel Guide - Know Before you Go!

Varanasi Overview

Often referred to as the religious capital of the country, Varanasi, is situated at the banks of the holy Ganges and is considered as one of the most remarkable touristic destinations in Northern India. The city is literally set against a backdrop of eighteenth and nineteenth-century temples and palaces that step down to a chain of sacred stone steps – the Ghats. The city, with its Sadhus, shrines and religious symbolisms is spiritual, colorful and full of life. The accessibility to the practices of an ancient but still living religious tradition is what captivates many tourists. A walk along the Ghats or a boat ride on the river is one of India’s most riveting spiritual experiences.

Local Language

Hindi and Urdu are commonly spoken in Varanasi. But because it is a major tourist destination, a portion of the population also speaks English.
