Know More about this tour

Day 1:
Board your afternoon or evening flight or Train from New Delhi to Varanasi. Meeting and assistance upon arrival at Varanasi Airport or Railway Station and transfer to hotel.
Overnight: Hotel in Varanasi

Day 2:
At dawn, visit the sacred Ganges for a boat ride. Every morning at dawn, hundreds of worshipers can be seen bathing in the sacred waters. The great river banks are lined with an endless chain of stone steps the ghats that stretch from one end of the city to the other. Believing that anyone who dies in the river of life in Varanasi gains freedom from the cycle of birth and death, the sitehas become a haven for the sick and aged waiting out their final days. The smoke that billows from the crematoriums on the edge of the river gives testimony to their final release from life's earthly confines. Your boat docks at Manikarnika (cremation) Ghat. On any given day, anywhere from a few dozen to a few hundred corpses are cremated here; the ghat is assiduous with activity as the cremated bodies threw up smoke and fire.

In the afternoon, visit several temples and the Hindu University at Benares. First stop is the Bharat Mata (temple of Mother India). Inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi, it features a huge marble map of India on the ground floor. Next up, is the Durga temple. Known for its bright red color and the monkeys that run amok there, the Durga temple is one of the most imposing architectural monuments in Varanasi.

The university, which occupies a large piece of land at the southern end of town, is also home to the New Vishwanatha Temple. The New Temple is modern in design and open to Hindus and non-Hindus alike. Surrounded by palm trees, it is a white marble structure that shines in the afternoon sun against a pale blue sky. Inside, the temple is spacious and airy. The interior walls are covered with Vedic art above inscriptions from the Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads. In the center of the first floor is the Shiva linga.

In the evening, you will visit the ghats of Varanasi to witness the performance of Ganges aarti. Enjoy a special evening cruise on the Ganges to see the Hindu devotees performing puja with lamps.

Traveler Reviews

    This tour of Varanasi was excellent! Shashank was a superior guide: knowledgeable, interesting and easygoing. We had difficulties, however, before and during the tour with items listed on the itinerary which the company claimed were not included including airfare ! and river cruise. Compare carefully the list of included items and the paragraph describing what you'll do. We had to ask Viator to intervene on the airfare dispute. Even they recommended the tour provider rewrite the tour description.
