Varanasi

A sacred city for Hindus and thought by many to be the place where Buddhism formed as a religion, Varanasi leaves an imprint on the hearts and minds of visitors regardless of their creed, race, or religion.
Bring the kids along to Walking tours and Banaras Ghats. Step out of Varanasi to go to Sarnath and see Ashoka Pillar, which is approximately 36 minutes away. There's much more to do: explore the activities along Ganges River, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at New Vishwanath Temple, make a trip to Sarnath, and admire the striking features of Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Varanasi itinerary planning app.

In December, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
