You then head to the Manikarnika Ghat, a majestic set of steps leading down to the sacred River Ganges, where you can observe the locals at worship or performing traditional rituals. Then it's time to observe some incredible architecture, such as the St. Thomas Church, and the fascinating Jantar Mantar, which is a set of old astronomical tools.

It's the perfect way to spend a morning or afternoon learning the very heart and soul of Varanasi.
