Varanasi

A sacred city of the Hindus, Varanasi is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. The city attracts hundreds of thousands of Hindus on pilgrimages; one of Varanasi's most famous sights is the Holy River Ganges - and more specifically, the sight of hundreds of Hindu pilgrims bathing in the river at sunrise in front of one of the many wonderful temples. The banks of the Ganges are lined with 'ghats', the word for the series of steps that lead from each riverside temple to the edge of the water. Varanasi is also famous for the production of fine silk; there are shops, stalls and factory outlets throughout the city. As with any purchase in India, shop around and barter the price down.

“Great experience but very tiring. We could have flown direct to |Amritsar and then taken a train back to New Delhi. We could in each city have stayed somewhere close to the sights so that we would not have needed to spend hours extra stuck in traffic jams as we tried to cross the cities.
