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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sankat Mochan Temple and Archaeological Museum. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Bed Silk & Pashmina and Tibetan Temple. Step out of Varanasi with an excursion to Chunar Fort in Mirzapur--about 58 minutes away. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple (Golden Temple), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Banaras Ghats, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Nepali Temple (Kathwala Temple), and pause for some photo ops at Dhamek Stupa.
