The best-known places in Varanasi

Varanasi gets its name from the fact that it is located between the confluence of the rivers Varuna and Assi. Varanasi is a sacred city on the banks of the Ganges River, just 320 kilometres south-east of the Uttar Pradesh state capital, which is Lucknow. India is home to seven sacred pilgrimage sites for followers of the Hindu faith, and Varanasi is the holiest among them. In many ways Varanasi has brought along Hinduism’s glorious past into contemporary India, and continues to be a stronghold of spiritual learning and enlightenment in the country. Varanasi attracts thousands of tourists every year, many of them devout followers of the Hindu faith. The Ghats of Varanasi hold even more significance for Hindus who hold the belief that cremation on these sacred grounds breaks the cycle of life and death. Varanasi is a city of temples and deep seated religious beliefs, yet it is also bustling with trade and commerce.
