Best Places to Visit in Varanasi Sightseeing Tour

Kashi Vishwanath Temple

While touring the holy land of Varanasi, visiting the Kashi Vishwanath Temple which is among the 12 Jyotirlingas located alongside the sacred Ganges provides a heartful sight to visitors. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva who is also known by the name of Vishwanath or Vishweshwarar who gave the name to the temple. The temple holds great significance among Hindus because of its charisma and grand architecture. People visit the river Ganga to perform rituals and seek blessings from Gods and Goddesses.

Banaras Ghats

The sacred land of Varanasi houses around 84 ghats starting from the Assi Ghat to Raj Ghat which gives the opportunity to pilgrims to take a dip in the holy water of Ganga and release their sins in water. Tourists travelling the city must add the ghat tours to their itinerary as each ghat of the city holds a special significance and story of its own. The ghats of Varanasi were mainly reconstructed and re-established during the Maratha rule. The serene environment and elegant temples around the Ganga make the Banaras Ghat a sight to behold.

Dashashwamedh Ghat

Spirituality and calmness flow in the rivers of Varanasi and Dashashwamedh Ghat is the top site to witness the Ganga aartis in the morning and evening. The ghat is among the oldest ghats to captivate an alluring sight of lighted lamps, holy chants and thousands of devotees paying their respects. Dashashwamedh means ‘Lord Brahma’ and therefore many tales and stories are associated with the Ghat region, making it a must visit destination during the Varanasi tour. Dashashwamedh Ghat is a visual work of art that will make a lasting impression on its visitors.
