In the beginning of this week, I got a chance to visit one of the holiest cities of India which is Banaras also known as Varanasi. Varanasi is a very popular religious destination because of presence of many places of religious importance around it. It is situated on the bank of holly river the Ganga. Banaras is also known as Kashi because of the Lord Kashi Vishwanath temple of Lord Shiva situated in it. This city holds a great significance in the life of every Hindu because of its religious value. According to the Hindu religion, any person who dies in Kashi attains a godhood and gets himself free from the cycle of birth and death.
Therefore, it is a desire of many Hindus to die in this place. This place is known to be constructed by the Lord Shiva himself for the welfare of mankind so that they can attain self realization by meditating here. It is very difficult for us to imagine Varanasi city without the touch of religion. This holly city is full of numbers of beautiful and religiously significant temples. The beauty of Varanasi is its 80 Ghats. It is really an enjoyable experience to spend evenings on these Ghats of Banaras.
This city provides a real picture of India and Hindu religion. Other religions like Buddhism and Jainism also have their roots in Varanasi. Lord Mahatma Buddha also gave his first sermon at Sarnath near Varanasi. Most of the time city remains crowded with different religious festivals and get-togethers. This city also holds a good name in education due to Banaras Hindu University which has given number of eminent scholars to the world.
Sweets and others eatable preparations of the Banaras are very famous around the world. Small streets of the Varanasi offer a great option of eating number of tasty sweets and Namkeens. Overall, Varanasi can be easily termed as one of the real Indian city which has still maintained its roots and traditional values.
