Bharat Mata Mandir: It is a fantastic shrine in Varanasi devoted to the human appearance of India universally renowned as Bharat Mata in Hindi or Mother India. It is not at all constructed in the honor of any Indian god or goddesses and was inaugurated by the Father of Nation.

Banaras Hindu University: The one and only BHU or Banaras Hindu University was constructed in the year 1916-1917 under the special act of parliament approved in 1915 named BHU act. The imperial British government passed this act and the remarkable personalities of India namely Annie Besant and Mahamna Pundit Madan Mohan Malaviya kept its foundation and introduced many unique concepts and novel ideas. Above and beyond, around 1350 acres of land was donated by the then Raja of Kashi for the structural designing of its extensive campus.

Durga Mandir: It is completely dedicated to the momentous demonstration of Parvati, Goddess Durga, who is also known as the better half of Lord Shiva. If truth be told, she is also whispered to be Shakti, or the expression of Parvati that indicates the female persona blessed with the immense harmony and power. This is exactly because a Bengali Maharani constructed this pious Durga Mandir in the 18th century.

Kashi Vishwanath Mandir: It holds a great relevance and reverence in the glorious history of Kashi temples in Uttar Pradesh. Its timeless aura and grandeur lure the attention of big chunk of foreign holidaymakers and other historians barring the entry of those who are not practicing Hinduism.

Ramnagar Fort: It is the ex- fort of Varanasi city. But in recent times, it is regarded as the abode of the Maharaja of Kashi, who is from time to time popular as Raja of Banaras. It is located on the opposite shore of the Ganges and the most integral construction placed within the Ramnagar fort and is undeniably eye-catching is the 'Durbar Hall' or the “Hall of Public Audience”.

Sankat Mochan Mandir: This revered holy place does not bring to light any historical importance and is worth visiting once in your life time. Sankat Mochan Mandir was in point of fact used to very small in its early stage. Bur gradually several 'Mahants' accumulated some funds to improve the entire composition and nowadays it brags off a great compound.
