Varanasi - Sightseeing Tours and Activities

If you want to learn more about Hindu and other kinds of religions, you won't go wrong with spending your vacation in Varanasi. It's considered to be the spiritual capital of India since it's an important location for several religions. The Buddha gave his first sermon here around 528 BC, and the city has continued to play a big role in the development of Buddhism ever since. Varanasi is one of seven sacred sites in Hinduism and Jainism, and it became a center of Hindu theology and intellect during the Middle Ages. The city also had contributed to the beginnings of Sikhism and had been influenced by Islam when it came under the rule of Muslim Mughal emperors.

With these in mind, it's not surprising that Varanasi has been at the top of Must-Visit lists both for locals and tourists. Read on to learn more about what to expect when you travel to this city.

Sightseeing places to visit in Varanasi

One of the first things you'll want to do when you arrive is to visit the city's religious buildings. There are lots of Islamic mosques and Hindu temples and ghats in the area, so take the time to explore them, marvel at their architecture, and learn more about their history. Don't worry about getting lost; there are signposts along the way, and you can always follow the ghats to find your hotel or at least the street that it's on.

After taking a sightseeing tour of these land-based structures, you can visit the markets and shopping malls in the city and browse through the jewelry, rugs, carpets, saris, silk clothing, and other products. Varanasi is well-known for its silk weaving industry, so you'll most likely get high-quality fabrics with bursts of vibrant colors.

Things to do and activities in Varanasi

  • Check out the temples, mosques, and other religious and historical buildings in the city.
  • Book a boat trip on the Ganges River. This is a great way to see the numerous shrines and temples along the river while enjoying magnificent views. Make sure to book a morning boat ride so you can enjoy your trip while the sun isn't too hot.
  • Observe the traditional rituals that locals and pilgrims perform. Many Hindus go to Varanasi to bath in the holy Ganges River and wash away their sins, while others visit the city to cremate their dead relatives.

Top attractions in Varanasi

  • Kashi Vishvanath Temple - Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the Kashi Vishvanath Temple is one of the most famous temples in Varanasi and one of the 12 holiest temples of Shiva (known as Jyotirlingas). Travel experts recommend bringing your passport as well as an offering to ensure you can enter the temple.
  • Ramnagar Fort and Museum - The fort and palace was built in the 17th century, and they house an eccentric collection of items (including a jewel-covered sedan chair). Make sure to visit the place in the afternoon to enjoy a breathtaking view as the sun sets over the Ganges River.
  • Manikarnika Ghat - There are lots of ghats in Varanasi, but you won't want to miss Manikarnika Ghat. It's considered to be the main burning ghat, so cremations often happen here. If you want to observe the traditional Hindu way of cremating a body, this is the place to be.
