Varanasi Holidays

The holy city of Varanasi, the ‘City of Light’, dedicated to Lord Shiva, the Hindu god of creation and destruction, is one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities. Dating back to around the 6th century BC, the city is spread along the River Ganges, fronted by the famous stone ghats where life and ritual are laid bare for all to see. This is one of India’s most powerful destinations, where you can fully experience colour, chaos and culture. Walk with pilgrims along the ghats, admire ancient temples, get lost in labyrinthine alleyways and experience sacred rituals – just some of the things that make Varanasi so unique and magical.
