Places to visit in Varanasi

  • Religious Buildings - Varanasi or Banaras in Uttar Pradesh is not called one of the holiest for no reason, and it definitely shows in the number of religious buildings in the area. Nearly everywhere you turn, you will see a temple or two, built with grandeur and in great honor of the Hindu faith. One of the must-see is Kaal Bhairav Temple, built in honor of the dark form of the Lord Shiva that symbolizes death.
  • River Ganges - This river is so sacred that Hindu Kings wanted to die along its bank. This is why they built magnificent palaces on the continuous stretch. Today, you would still see these palaces known as ghats, enhancing River Ganga's sanctity and beauty. The best of way to view all 84 ghats is to charter a boat for a river cruise along the Ganges.
  • Forts - Cities have been known to fortify their borders as a form of protection. These days, forts serve as tourist attractions included in many holiday packages and sightseeing tours. In Varanasi, one of the must-see fort is the Chunar Fort, which is more than 2000 years old.

Other places of interest that you should visit during your vacation include the Banaras Hindu University, and Sankat Mochan Temple that has thousands of monkeys as residents.
