Day 09: Varanasi
Varanasi GhatVaranasi is a holy city where life begins to take shape early in the wee hours of the morning, as the time is considered pure and ideal, especially for performing holy rituals. Accordingly, we start as early as 0500 hrs. and proceed towards the Daswamedh Ghat. Take a boat ride on the silent waters of the holy Ganges and witness the purification rituals being performed on the cremation ghats (river bank). Take some time to observe the ceremonies as your guide talks you through the cultural and religious importance of these acts. As sun rises, the emerald waters and the ghats are bathed in a golden hue, providing a mesmerising sight. The place starts getting chirpy as thousands of other devotees start pouring in, waiting for a turn to purify their souls and lead themselves on the road to nirvana with a dip in the holy waters. We move back to the hotel passing through labyrinthine streets. Visit the Kashi Vishwanath Temple en-route.

Breakfast will be served at the hotel.Varanasi Ghat Proceed for a guided tour of Varanasi entailing sights like the Vishvanath Khanda - an intricate maze of narrow lanes and bylanes, Kedar Ghat - a prominent place having links with the kedarnath shrine in the upper reaches of the Himalayas, Alamgir Mosque - situated on the panchganga ghat, it is also known as the 'beni madhav ka dera' and the Durga Temple - it is also sometimes called the monkey temple because of the overwhelming simian presence.
