Varanasi
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.
Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple (Golden Temple) and Sankat Mochan Temple will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Ganges River and Chandraprabha Wildlife Sanctuary. There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Bharat Kala Bhavan, admire the masterpieces at Archaeological Museum, make a trip to Assi Ghat, and take in the exciting artwork at Ruchika Art Gallery.

For photos, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Varanasi itinerary builder app .

Expect a daytime high around 39°C in July, and nighttime lows around 31°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
