Varanasi, also known as Kashi, is believed to be one of the oldest surviving cities of the world. Varanasi is the symbol of undying faith to millions of devotees who throng the Ghats and temples of this holy city every year to attain moksha or liberation. Varanasi city has been the ultimate axis of spiritualism, education and religion for thousands of years. The significance of Varanasi/ Kashi can be gauged from the fact that Hindus from different parts of India wish to spend their last days in the eternal city to attain liberation. This very facet of the holy city pulls curious westerners as well as diehard devotees to her fold.
This ancient city is full of historical temples that are a major tourist attraction. It is interesting to note that most of the religious activity takes place on the banks of River Ganga (Ganga Ghats). It is on the sacred Ghats of Varanasi where you can see the real life. There are devotees taking holy dip and performing rituals on the one hand and people performing last rites of their near and dear ones on the other. Varanasi is an example of peaceful co-existence of religions. You can have a meaningful insight into what Varanasi is all about by taking a boat ride on the Ganges in the wee hours of the morning. The experience is truly transcendental and beyond words!
