Varanasi is the ultimate coming together of India at its most exotic and authentic.
(PRWEB) October 15, 2013
Maddening, life-changing, and for many travellers, highly addictive, India overwhelms the senses like few other destinations with its sensory overload of sights, chaos and spirituality.
Nowhere is this more the case than in Varanasi, Hinduism’s holiest city, located on the bank of the Ganga River. From watching pilgrims wash away their karmic sins in the Ganga, to witnessing a funeral ceremony or cremation, to the quintessential experience of a sunset or sunrise boat ride, Varanasi is the ultimate coming together of India at its most exotic and authentic.
A ramshackle collection of buildings and colours, with a distinctly Indian blur of organized chaos, this is also the country’s oldest continually inhabited city. Readily washable slip-on shoes are a must, since temple-hopping is an essential part of the Varanasi experience. Goway’s Splendours of India itinerary also takes guests to Sarnath, the site of Buddha’s first sermon after gaining enlightenment.
With its tremendous significance to both Hindus and Buddhists, it’s not wonder Uttar Pradesh – the state where both cities are found – leaves visitors feeling both enriched and refreshed. Many Globetrotters to return time and again in search of health, wellness and enlightenment, and of course, there’s no better place in the world for taking a yoga class.
Goway Travel’s Splendours of India is one of its most popular Holidays of a Lifetime, visiting the incredible Taj Mahal, along with eight of the country’s most inspiring cities including Mumbai, Udaipur, famous for its palaces, the pink city of Jaipur, Delhi, and mystical Varanasi.
