About Varanasi

+ Read More

Rising from the western bank of River Ganga, Varanasi is a magnificent city where the river takes a broad crescent step towards the north. There is little in the world to compare with the splendour of Banaras, seen from the river at dawn. It is popular worldwide with the name of Kashi – the luminous, City of Light. In the early morning the temples and shrines, ashrams and pavilions that stretch along the river for over three miles are golden. At dawn long flight of steps called Ghats bring thousands of worshippers down to the river to bathe. At the top of these steps in the narrow lanes moves the unceasing earthly drama of life and death, which the Hindus call Samsara, but here from the perspective of the Ganga River, there is a vision of the transcendence and liberation, which the Hindus call Moksha.

Varanasi being one of the oldest living cities in the world and so the houses in its by-lanes are at least 500 years old. Composed between 1500-1200 BC, Rigveda an ancient Indian text, talk about Kashi as the luminous. As Varanasi is known worldwide as the spiritual capital of India, it provides liberation or Moksha to those who die at the bank of the sacred river Ganges. Religiously, Kashi has been the centre for Hindus, Jains, Sikhs and Buddhists. Abode of Lord Shiv, it is probably the only cosmopolitan where temples and mosques share the same boundary, a sight quite rare in this post-modern world.

Under UNESCO’s creative cities network Kashi is listed as the city of music and is a paradise for cultural enthusiasts, scholars and artists. Kashi is the hometown of several great persons like Tulsidas, Kabir, UstadBismillah Khan and Pandit Ravi Shankar and it has also attracted great minds including Mahatma Gandhi, Mark Twain, Annie Besant and Swami Vivekananda, and inspired their work. The narrow pathways of Kashi consists of echoing sounds of bells and classical music, traditional architecture of closely-spaced houses, aromas of delicious chaat and sweets and vibrant colours of Banarasi artefacts such as the silk sarees. Welcome to this living museum of Indian cultural heritage.
