Varanasi Flights Guide
Varanasi is the spiritual capital of India, and the countryís oldest city. It is the holiest city in the Hindu religion and in Jainism as well. It is built along the Ganges River, and many Hindus come to bathe as part of the religious rites. The river walk is crowded with people, boats and aromas. People carry parasols to block the sun in the summer months, and throughout the year the buildings and temples that rise on the banks take in the orange of dusk and make it one of the most spectacular scenes in the world.
There are a number of ghats, or flights of steps, that dip into the water. It is here that bathers come to wash and pray. There are also ghats where cremations take place, which demand the utmost respect. A number of temples make up the religious makeup of this most important of cities. The Kaal Bhairav Temple, Gauri Matha Temple, Sankat Mochan Temple and Vishwanath Temple are the principles. Varanasi has also played a role in Buddhism, and some miles outside the city is Sarnath, where it is said the Buddha gave his first enlightened sermon. In Varanasiís cityscape, one can get romantically lost in its small alleys and backstreets; it is the best experience imaginable.
