Varanasi is the oldest city of the world. It is the most popular pilgrimage point for the Hindus and falls under one of the seven holiest cities. Situated on the banks of the river Yamuna, Varanasi is a major tourist destination and has a rich historical background.
It is considered as the abode of Lord Shiva and Hindus believe that one who is graced to die on the land of Varanasi would attain salvation and freedom from the cycle of birth and re-birth.
Pilgrims come to the ghats lining the Ganges to wash away sins in the sacred waters or to cremate their loved ones. Intimate rituals of life and death take place in public.
Varanasi has also been a great center of learning for ages and is associated with promotion of spiritualism, mysticism, Sanskrit, yoga and Hindi language.
