  • One place to visit. Very well done. It is not the most beautiful or the most ugly. To fill the time and nothing more. I can't say more

  • This temple is dedicated to mother India. The prime(and only) attraction is a 3D physical of the undivided India. And this temple was built more than 100 years ago. It seems that no one is interested ...  more »

Where to stay in Varanasi

The old city of Varanasi has a long history of pilgrimage and tourism, and its range of accommodations has developed to a high degree to meet the vast demand from across India and further afield. Perhaps the most interesting and atmospheric place to stay can be found in the area surrounding the ghats on the west bank of the river. You can find an eclectic mix of simple hotels and guesthouses all the way from this point up to the main train station. North of the station sit the most luxurious of the city's accommodations, with views of the tributary that runs through the north, and a range of additional facilities.
