Varanasi is one of the biggest centres of spiritual knowledge in the World. This city of Moksha is often referred to as Benares. People from all walks of life come here to wash away their sins, attain salvation and free themselves from the cycle of birth and re-birth. We had designed this package to make you experience the knowledge, philosophy, culture, spiritualism, mysticism, Indian arts and crafts with which the city had evolved through the centuries.

Varanasi is the India of your imagination. One of the most colourful and fascinating places on earth, surprises abound around every corner.This is one of the world's oldest continually inhabited cities, and one of the holiest in Hinduism. Pilgrims come to the ghats lining the Ganges to wash away sins in the sacred waters or to cremate their loved ones. It's a particularly auspicious place to die, since expiring here offers moksha (liberation from the cycle of rebirth).

Most visitors agree Varanasi is magical – but not for the faint-hearted. Intimate rituals of life and death take place in public, and the sights, sounds and smells on the ghats – not to mention almost constant attention from touts – can be intense. Still, the so-called City of Light may turn out to be your favourite stop of all. Walking the ghats and alleyways or watching sunrise from a boat can be unforgettable.
