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.

On the 15th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, view the masterpieces at Ruchika Art Gallery, and then stop by Bala Ji Handicraft.
