Varanasi is one of India’s holiest cities where pilgrims line the river Ganges to wash away a lifetime of sins. It’s India’s most auspicious place to die so the sights, smells and sounds are certainly not for the fainthearted. Our half-day tour explores this fascinating city. It takes in the bustling ghats by boat in the morning light; the crowded temples, which attract throngs of pilgrims; the labyrinth of ancient streets in Varanasi’s old town as well as the ruined city of Sarnath. If time permits your guide can arrange a visit to an ashram so that you gain a deeper understanding of Hinduism and the importance of spirituality for the residents who live in this remarkable place.
