Varanasi

— 17 nights

Spiritual Capital of India

A sacred city for Hindus and thought by many to be the place where Buddhism formed as a religion, Varanasi leaves an imprint on the hearts and minds of visitors regardless of their creed, race, or religion.
Venture out of the city with trips to Mirzapur (Vindhyavasini Devi Temple & Lakhaniya Dari) and Devdari Falls (in Chandauli). The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Ganges River, take in the spiritual surroundings of New Vishwanath Temple, don't miss a visit to Sarnath, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.
