This art gallery is one of a kind in banaras. Great vibe and garden to just relax from the crazy traffic outside. They showcase some unique international and local artist's work and have a small art shop on the side. Bought few gifts too. Don't miss out.

A must-see in Varanasi. Always has a wonderful display in the gallery and often has events and open house parties. The owners are welcoming and very knowledgable and can help with seeing other parts of the city as well.
