 India - Varanasi - The Holy city of India

"Benaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together"
- Mark Twain

 
Varanasi, or Benaras is one of the oldest living cities in the world. Varanasi`s Prominence in Hindu mythology is virtually
unrevealed. According to the ‘Vamana Purana’, the Varuna and the Assi rivers originated from the body of the primordial
Person at the beginning of time itself. The tract of land lying between them is believed to be ‘Varanasi’, the holiest
of all pilgrimages.
  

Varanasi is the microcosm of Hinduism, a city of traditional classical culture, glorified by myth and legend and sanctified
by religion , it has always attracted a large number of pilgrims and worshippers from time immemorial. To be in Varanasi
is an experience in itself an experience in self–discover an eternal oneness of the body and soul. To every visitor; Varanasi
offers a breathtaking experience.

 
The rays of the dawn shimmering across the Ganges, the high-banks, the temples and shrines along the banks bathed in a
golden hue soul stirring hymns and mantras alongwith the fragrance of incense filling the air and the refreshing dip in the
holy waters gently splashing at the Ghats.
  

 
 
Varanasi – the land where experience and discovery reach the ultimate bliss.
