Blow your mind. Colours, sights, sounds and smells. Almost sensory overload. Loved every minute. All for free if you get yourself there

“Varanasi - hub of Hindu religion in India and one of the oldest pilgrim cities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Varanasi in India is one of the major important cities. Varanasi is really one of the most attractive destination to visit, you could say that if you come to Varanasi you could explore culture, tradition and religious life of India. Most important places of visit in Varanasi are boating on river Ganges in early morning at sunrise, evening aarti ceremony on river Ganges, Bharat Mata templeand excursion to Sarnath

“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The evening boat ride on the Ganges together with the dawn boat ride was our most unforgettable experience during our trip to India. Despite what could be described as squalor there was certainly an air of reverence about the whole area and the method of openly cremating the dead seems a sensible way of dealing with the bodies of the deceased in a country that will have little open space within the city.

“Save Ganga, it will save us.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Traveled from Triveni Sangam in Allahabad to Varanasi Ghats. Ganga is a lifeline, true to her name. Please save it. Still half burnt bodies are dumped into the river at the Ghats.
