People from all parts of India, speaking different languages and dialects and carrying their own traits, taboos and traditional have settled in this city. Ultimately they accepted Vishvanath Shiva as their main deity. In Banaras alone, there are over 3600 Hindu shrines and temles, 1388 Muslim shrines and mosques, 42 Sikh temples, 12 churches, 3 Jain temples, 9 Buddhist temples and several other sacred sites and places. it is said 'by seeing Varanasi, one can see as much of life as the whole India can show'; but it is not easy to comprehend for those who stand outside the Hindu trandition. The stories of Ganga would change, but the motherly river lives on. The 6.5 KMs long riverfront of river Ganga in Varanasi, possesses a unique history, specific vision of magnificent architectural row of lofty buildings and holy sites.In a way, the city of Banaras is perceived as an intellectual laboratory of humanity where any aspects of life, from past to future, tradition to modernity, chaos to order, realization to revelation, perspectives to prospects, illusion to vision, death to life, displacement to settlement...and so on,... can easily be seen, envisioned, portrayed, purveyed, and also presented a model frame for step forward in understand and co-sharing by making bridge between locality and universality, and also between humanity and divinity.The merit of Varanasi lies in the fact that there is so much for every need and every mood, that there can be no one who returns from here less than inspired. We, Groovy tours, has specialized division to cater to the needs of all types of travelers; whether it is a guest looking for safety and security of escorted group tours, or someone seeking exclusive customized tour package, business traveler, a pilgrim or someone just looking to walk in the hidden alleys of one of the oldest living cities on the planet.Lets explore Varanasi with us!!! « less

Food instantly becomes the common denominator between the traveller and the local resident, making them one! The F&B walk traces the serpentine lanes lining the ghats, such as the Assi Ghat (where the poet Tulsidas spent his life writing the Ramcharitamanas), Bengali Tola, Shivala and Sonarpura. As you go along sampling foods, you walk past shrines and temples, sari shops and handicraft outlets, noting down the ones you might want to come back to.Because right now there are more important things to do: the walk of your life has begun and you are going to relish it the Banarasi way! « less
