Varanasi

Varanasi is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Its early history is that of the first Aryan settlement in the middle Ganges valley. The city is a centre of arts and crafts and of music and dance. Varanasi is famous for its production of silks and brocades with gold and silver threadwork. A renowned carpet-weaving centre is at Bhadoi. Wooden toys, bangles made of glass, ivory work, and brass ware are also produced in Varanasi

Explore holy Varanasi – an atmospheric blend of temples, river ghats and bazaars. Sail on the Ganges at dawn for a magical experience as the sun rises over pilgrims absolving sins in the river. Explore the city and nearby Sarnath, and wander independently through the bright bustle of the backstreets of Benares. Visiting Shiva’s city is a must on any visit to India.

Start and end in Varanasi! With the discovery tour Varanasi Extension (Original), you have a 3-day tour package taking you through Varanasi, India, and Sarnath. Varanasi Extension (Original) is a small group tour that includes accommodation in a hotel as well as an expert guide, transport and more.

Saturday

Varanasi

       

Early morning around 0500 AM you will be picked up from the hotel for a boat ride along the Holy River Ganges. It is an experience to watch people bathing and worshiping on the Ghats.

During the boat ride along the Ganges River, you will see pilgrims descend into the river to submerge and cleanse their souls. You will also pass through Manikarnika Ghat (cremation site). It is believed that if the dead body of a person is cremated here, then the dead human’s soul finds salvation/Moksha. So, it is actually a place where the elderly across the world visit and spend their last days while enjoying the charisma of the Ghat. It is believed that death is even painless at this Ghat.

We get down from our boat at Assi Ghat to take our car and drive through Banaras Hindu University. We later visit Bharat Mata Mandir &  Durga Temple.

In the afternoon we visit Sarnath, where Lord Buddha preached his first sermon “Maha- Dharma-Chakra Pravartan” (in Buddhist terminology, ‘turned the wheel of the law’) after his enlightenment. Sarnath is one of the richest in Buddhist antiquities ranging in date from the times of Ashoka down to the 12th century A.D. Ashoka built here the Dharmarajika Stupa and erected a pillar surmounted by the magnificent capital of four adorsed Lions, which today forms the national emblem of India.

Among other structures at Sarnath are the ruins of the brick temple; the Dhamekh Stupa, adorned with delicate floral carvings; the Chaukhandi Stupa and Mahabodhi Society’s Mulgandha Kuti Vihar Temple. We also visit the Archeological Museum, with an extremely rich collection of Buddhist sculptures comprising of numerous Buddha and Bodhisatva images.

 

Later I moved to the bank of the Ganges River to witness collective prayer The Aarti ceremony on the Ganges River (sacred river in India) is breathtaking the darkness of  the night contrasting with the river, ghats and temples, lit with lamps and candles as people perform their prayers. 

Return to the hotel and Hotel Accommodation.
