    This ghatt is where many Hindus congregate to say their evening prayers. There is quite a colorful ceremony with Hindu priests chanting prayers, with the attendant music, conch-blowing and incense.  more »

    The best place to dive in Holy river for swimming and snorkeling. Here you will find many children diving and snorkeling in the river at early morning.

    Nice Ghat from where one can see the Ganga flowing on right and left. Rising Sun can also be viewed from here, making the Ganga water as Golden.

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.
