What To Expect

Whether it's half day or a full day, this tour will undoubtedly take you to some of the most vital points in Varanasi where you'll discover the true depth of its cultural roots and history. With the help of your English speaking guide, you'll first be conveyed to Ramnagar Fort, a famous sandstone fort of beautifully designed architecture; Shastri Home, home of one of the most famous figures in local history; and the Manikarnika Ghat, which is a river mouth dedicated to to where Mata Sati's ear ornament has fallen. Each one of these sites have a long history behind them that your guide will tell you about. Afterwards, you'll have a spiritual journey as you visit three famous religious sites of the area, the Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple and the Shri Durga Temple, and the Gyan Kapur well. Learn about the deities celebrated in each of the temples and the story behind the famous well which locals believe will lead you to a higher spiritual plane. After this, you will offer some prayers at the Alamgir Mosque, adjacent to the sacred River Ganges, with its dazzling Hindu and Mughal styles of architecture. You'll get to taste some local delicacies on your break before you visit the Tomb of Lal Khan, the final resting place of a Mughal noble, and you'll learn about his life and history. Should your preferred tour be the full day, you'll continue on to see the Bharat Kala Bhawan, a rich art and archaeological museum, as well as St Mary's Cathedral, which is frequently called an architectural wonder from 1854. This is followed by a delicious lunch at one of the favorite dining establishments, frequented by locals. Then you'll head to Banaras Hindu University, a highly prestigious institution in the area. From here, you'll be able to walk around to see the famous Ghasts of the Banaras, see the locals celebrating rituals and customs on them, and even attend the Ganga Aarti, a truly life-changing vision as dusk descends upon the city. Watching this breathtaking spiritual ritual performed on the banks of the river is the perfect way to end a day discovering the cultural richness of Varanasi.
