A city so old that even Rome falls short in comparison is Varanasi. It is also known as Kashi and is the ancient Indian city situated on the banks of River Ganga. Looking up its history yields multiple accounts of attacks, raids, and plunders on this city at different points on its timeline. Unlike other tourist attractions, Varanasi does not have big architectural structures and rock carvings to set it apart. It is the religious charm of this place that makes it a place to visit.

“The City of Light”

It is the sacred city which attracts millions of devotees to its mystic religious shrines. Varanasi is known to have been built by Lord Shiva himself and, thus, gains its reputation as a center of religious learning. From the left-hand side banks of Ganges, the path that leads into the city is a maze of alleyways with tall houses and temples on both sides. It is a sight to behold, indeed.
