  • In the area of Varanasi is the Benares Hindu University, one of the most famous Indian universities. The campus area is quite large and incredibly beautiful. The streets of the town clean, have markings and pavement. Buildings have both medieval and modernist architecture. On the territory of the town is white Shiva temple and Bhavat Kala Bhavan Museum with a rich collection of paintings, sculptures, statues, bronze, various ornaments, ancient manuscripts. In the art galleries there are Gallery Nicholas Roerich. In the main hall of the Museum is the figure of Krishna raising mount.

Art lovers it is advisable to visit this place to enjoy the beautiful works of art.
