Varanasi: Divulging the Old City
One of the oldest and continuously populated city on the earth, Varanasi or Banaras is all about finding your inner self. My last holiday trip to the city where people come in search of Moksha, and take a holy dip in the river Ganges to wash away all their previous sins. The city is chaotic, insanely colourful, restless and if you will love her, the city will love you back. The streets are filled with foreigners dressed in Indian attires, singing and chanting while on their way to Ghats. The experiences of visiting the city will certainly change your perception towards life. The Ghats lining the sacred Ganges river where hundreds of dead cremating on a daily basis. It is believed that if you are cremated your loved ones here, their soul will attain Moksha (Liberation from the vicious cycle of death and birth). The Uttar Pradesh holiday packages are ideal for travellers wanted to experience something which no other destination in the world can.
Take a boat ride along the Ghats witnessing sacred rituals of life and death. The Kashi Vishwanath mandir is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temples and its history goes back to more than 3500 years. My holiday escape to one of the world’s oldest city was breathtaking and memories the place had left in me was speechless. for more info visit: http://www.travelduniya.com/
