One becomes overstimulated in Varanasi by all the chaos. Aashray was a perfect retreat where one could relax and process the visit. Kamal and his wife have a good command of the English language, are intelligent, & great conversationalists. They freely share information regarding India's history, religions, culture, politics and education system. We had many interesting and provocative discussions. His wife is an exceptional chef and one should eat all meals at this home stay. Wow what good food. There were four of us in our travel party and we all agreed that this home stay and one other home stay were the highlights of our trip to India - Thanks to Kamal and his wife! Ruth & Ken Johnson
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Aashray is in the heart of city, yet away from crowd. It's in a colony, but the main road linking the entire city is less than 100 meters away. Railway or bus station, temples, Ghats, shopping centers, mall, craft centers, restaurants, boats, hospitals and eatables, are all available within the radius of three kilometers of the house. Your Hosts: The Kapurs, are mixture of traditional and modern values. Mr Kapur, although a chartered accountant by profession is an avid reader of Hindi literature and devotes a lot of his time in keeping alive the beautiful culture of Varanasi. Mrs Kapur, with a graduation in Indian Classical music, is known more for her warmth and the magic she creates with the Indian veggies (you might almost forget your meats and fish for a while)! They have not forgotten their traditional customs and values but at the same time modern customs and values have been accepted whole-heartedly. Thanks to their interest in Yoga, history of India, local culture and traditions, they are able to share a lot and invite you to be a part of their lives for the moments that you are with them! ... more less
