Varanasi (Benares)

The North

The holy city of Hindus, Varanasi is 760 km South-east of Delhi, living symbol of Hindu religious belief and observance.

Prayer and meditation in Varanasi is conducted on the waterfront. Endless streams of people come to the great flights of steps leading to the river for prayer and ablution.

On the outskirts of Varanasi is Sarnath, a great center of Buddhist pilgrimage. It was here that Buddha preached his first sermon, 2500 years ago.
