Introduction to Varanasi

 

 
 

Varanasi once identified as Banares or Banaras and Kashi, is a historical city of northern India. The city holds a great relevance for Hindus because of its religious fervor and personifies the most excellent and worst features of India, and it can be a slight awe-inspiring. Though, the scene of devotees offering their prayers in the River Ganges at break of day set against the background of the time-honored ancient temples is almost certainly one of the most imposing highlights in the world - unquestionably a must see tourist places on any tour to northern India. Moreover, Varanasi is one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world and even renowned writer Mark Twain also wrote some verses in it’s eulogize “Benares is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice as old as all of them put together.” It is believed to be 3000 years old and has the headquarters of Varanasi district.

The crispy information about Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, India also underscores that it is celebrated for its musical history and the famous Banaras Gharana has its pedigree in this city and is tremendously admired by the true judge of music. You will be amazed to known that various music maestros such as Girija Devi, Hariprasad Chaurasia, Pandit Ravi Shankar, and Ustad Bismillah Khan to name a small number of have their roots in Kashi. Last but not least, 12 highly thought of Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva are also placed respectfully in the pious place Shri Vishwanath Temple and due to this Gautam Buddha also uttered that it is one of the four pilgrimage sites and also an eminent birth place of 23 Jain Tirathanaka namely Parshvanatha. So, in the end, we would recommend you that please do not dare to leave Banaras city without visiting the most important and well-known centre of learning 'Benares Hindu University', which is considered as the biggest University in whole Asia.
