The heart of Indian spirituality. The beautiful sacred Ganges flows through Varanasi. Varanasi is sacred to Hindus, Buddhists and Jains and also one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. The scene of pilgrims doing their devotions in the River Ganges at sunrise set against the backdrop of the centuries old temples is probably one of the most impressive sights in the world. Visit the myriad of temples and enjoy the vegetarian cuisine here, though simple, but delicious.
Varanasi, India (Já vi nascer o sol a flutuar por estas águas onde impressiona tudo muito(!)...a história, os rituais as crenças a vivência de tudo isso ... e também o cheiro, o mau cheiro das ruas de Varanasi)
