Varanasi sightseeing tour- Delhi (by air)- Departure
The morning in Varanasi will unfold numerous exotic
aspects of India and more particularly Varanasi. To acquaint you with the traditional
and perennial Varanasi, you will be taken to the Varanasi ghat in the dawn-hours.
A long boat-ride alongside the various ghats of the Ganges will be carried out.
Early in the morning, proceed for viewing the panoramic view of ghats on boat. Ghats,
embankments of long flights of wide stone steps on river Ganges, add a divine charm to
Varanasi due to various activities like bathing, cremating, religious rituals, worshipping,
commercial activities, ablution to work-out, astrologers under their palm leaf parasols etc are performed.
Viewing the Ghats from a boat on the Ganges, especially at sunrise, is an unforgettable experience!
After visiting ghats, return to your Varanasi hotel.
Get refreshed, relax and have delicious breakfast. Thereafter, proceed to visit famous
temples of Varanasi. Though the temples of Varanasi are very famous and garner unfathomable
faith but their antiquity is not as old as is claimed. Though the city of Varanasi is one of
the oldest living city of the world but the temples are not as old. The ancient temples were
razed by the Muslim invaders out of religious zeal and hatred, so the existing temples can be
considered as of newer origin. The holy temples of Varanasi are amongst the most visited temples in India.
Situated on the banks of holy river Ganges, Varanasi temples add to the religious value to Ganges.
The famous temples of Varanasi are Kashi Vishwanath temple, Durga temple,
Sankat Mochan temple, Tulsi Manas temple and New Vishwanath temple. Also visit Benares Hindu University (B.H.U.).
Tulsi Manas temple, built in 1964, stands adjacent to Durga Temple. The Tulsi Manas temple, dedicated to Lord Rama,
is situated at the place where great poet and seer Tulsidas lived and wrote the great epic "Shri Ram Charit Manas".
After completing the sightseeing tour of Varanasi, drive to Varanasi airport to board flight for Delhi. On arrival at Delhi airport, internally change the terminal to board international flight for your onward destination.
