Allahabad Varanasi Tour Package

Duration : 05 Nights / 06 Days
Destination : Allahabad - Varanasi

ALLAHABAD-VARANASI - Everyone has their own way of celebrating the ritual contact with the holy Ganga: some bathe; other dip themselves entirely into the water once, thrice or any number of times; some drink the water; other make water offerings to the sun; while others fill their pots with holy water to take back to their homes to perform rituals and purification. The offerings to the sacred waters vary. Pilgrims give flowers, fruits, lamps and their respectful prayers. On festival days and religious occasions the riverside is thick with their colorful bobbing up and down on the waters...

Day 01: VARANASI
Afternoon arrival in Varanasi from Delhi/Haridwar by train. Watch evening arati (Hindu ritual) at the Ganges Stay at Hotel, or option to stay in a riverside guesthouse.

The Kashi Vishwanath Temple - Also known as the Golden Temple, it is dedicated to Lord Shiva, the presiding deity of the city. Varanasi is said to be the point at which the first jyotirlinga, the fiery pillar of light by which Shiva manifested his supremacy over other gods, broke through the earth's crust and flared towards the heavens. More than the Ghats and even the Ganga, the Shivalinga installed in the temple remains the devotional focus of Varanasi. Entry restricted for foreigners.
