"Benaras is other than the history, older than the tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together", was the thoughtful observation of the renowned English writer Mark Twain, who was very fond of Varanasi, its culture, tradition, cuisines and people. Benaras is consider as one of the oldest cities in the world. You can refer it as “the city of temples”, “the holy city of India”, “the religious capital of India”, “the city of lights” or the “the city of learning”. Benaras and Ganges share a very special bond. No other pilgrimage shares that bond. From early morning to late night Ganga looks like the lifeline of this holy city. The ghats of Ganges are always full with countless people trying to understand the mystery of life.
