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.
For shopping fun, head to Bala Ji Handicraft or Veave's Studio. Museum-lovers will get to explore Bharat Kala Bhavan and Archaeological Museum. Go for a jaunt from Varanasi to Sarnath to see Ashoka Pillar about 36 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, take in the spiritual surroundings of New Vishwanath Temple, make a trip to Dasaswamedh Ghat, and contemplate the waterfront views at Ganges River.
