Early morning, our tourist guide will meet you in hotel/Resident and give brief about today's Kashi Darshan tour. Tour start with drive towards Holy River Ganga where we will have early morning boat ride at dawn. Boating in the Ganges at the sunrise in Varanasi is one of the main attractions of this tour.
It is a mystical and spiritual experience as you watch people offering water to the Sun God and devotees taking holy dip in the Ganges. Observe the Hindu way of life on the bank of the River Ganges (Ganga). There are a number of temples on the bank of the Ganges River in Varanasi. It is at the Ganga Ghats (Banaras Ghat) where you see life and death together. There are numbers of Ghat alongside the Ganges River in Varanasi. Some of the most prominent and popular Ghats at Varanasi are the Dasaswamedh Ghat, Manikarnika Ghat, Harischandra Ghat, Assi Ghat,Shivala Ghat, Man Mandir Ghat, Darbhanga Ghat, Ahilyabai Ghat and Kedar Ghat.
Later, you will experience a fabulous temple tour which covers the most religious Kashi Vishwanath temple, also known as the Golden Temple, as well as the Annapurna Temple, Manas Mandir, Sankat Mochan (Hanuman temple), Durga Temple (Monkey Temple), BHU. You will have lunch en-route.
You will also visit Sarnath, the place where the Lord Buddha delivered his first sermon to his disciples in deer park. The attractions at Sarnath are the Buddha temples, the Dhamekha stupa, Chaukhandi stupa and the archaeological museum. Besides Buddhism, Sarnath is also connected with Jainism in Varanasi. There are many Buddhist monuments and edifices at Sarnath.
If you do not take the boat ride in morning, you will take one in the evening. You will later enjoy a mystical and spiritual experience as you watch Ganga Aarti. Aartis also refer to the songs sung in praise of the deity, when offering of lamps is being offered. Hindus in India worship the river Ganges as a goddess. Every evening in Varanasi, the aarti is performed at the Dashashwamedh Ghat. You can get a glimpse of the spiritualism at the Ganga Ghats (the riverfront also from a boat).
