Varanasi, anciently known as Kashi, has a huge religious significance in Indian history. Not just Hindus, a large section of which believe that death in the holy city is one of the surest means to salvation, Jains and Buddhists also hold the place in high esteem. It has continued to inspire art and literature for ages and finds itself glorified in the works of poets and writers alike. The city is the spot where Swami Tulsi Das wrote the Ramcharitmanas. Tulsi Manas Mandir is thus significant to both religious people and academicians. Evening aartis performed by the banks river Ganga have a special charm of their own. The Ghats that lighten up with clay lamps / diyas as the sun sets on the city re-illuminate the old-world charm of Varanasi. Foreigners are easy to spot in the city trying to get a sense of India’s ancient values that have been kept alive in Varanasi in narrow lanes and cluttered colonies. Famous for its Banarsi sarees, Varanasi is visited by art lovers from far & near on India day tour to Varanasi.
