Varanasi – Older than history & tradition

Named thus as the two rivers- Varuna and Assi, mark the boundaries of Kashi, the ancient city of Shiva. This is one of the oldest living cities in the world and its prominence in Hindu mythology is virtually unrivalled. Mark Twain, travelling through India visited here and said `Benaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together!!” Varanasi offers a breath-taking experience; the rays of the dawn shimmering across the Ganga River – the high banks, the temples, shrines and ashrams along the banks. This city is also a centre of music (classical) and famous for its silk brocade.

The principal attraction of the Holy City is the string of Ghats that line the western banks of the Ganges River. Most of these ghats are used for bathing and to offer prayers to the holy Ganges, two of them are also used as ‘burning ghats’ where Hindus are cremated. Being the city of Shiva, the Hindus believe that dying here means you achieve Moksh, or freedom from rebirth in an instant.

Our updated Amber program was designed by us personally with 60+ hours on the ground walking 25 km in that time and loving every minute of it! We changed our entire experience here. With very specific walking tours, amazing hidden temples, ancient markets, and wonderful museums, this city has so much to offer. Our boat ride has completely changed and we now take you to visit sites that very few know about or go to. Let us plan your clients visit here.
