In the morning, pick up from your place of stay in Delhi and transfer to Delhi airport to board flight 9W 2423 at 1050 hrs. Meet on arrival at Varanasi airport at 1210 hrs and transfer to hotel for check-in.
Rest of the day at leisure. Enjoy the evening AARTI at the GHATS. Every evening at sunset, this ceremony takes place at the Dasaswamedh Ghat- It is, in a word, awesome. There are platforms set along the bank of the Ganges, and on each platform, a priest is doing the puja. Incense fills the air, and the sound of the gongs resonates down the river. When we were there, hundreds of people (mainly Hindus) were watching, rapt in this atmosphere of faith & belief
Overnight at the hotel.
Day 2: In Varanasi
Early morning boat ride on Ganges. There is no Indian attraction like Varanasi. There are no architectural splendors, no exquisitely carved palaces or impregnable forts, and yet the city has an inherent charm. Situated on the west bank of the Ganges, it extends back from the riverbank ghats to a winding maze of picturesque alleys overlooking tall houses alongside, dotted with temple. Varanasi today, is also a centre of education, art and craft. The city has given birth to many academicians, musicians and artists of world acclaim.
Boat ride is followed by city tour of Varanasi – Varanasi – driving through the Benaras Hindu University with a visit to the Bharat Mata (Mother India) Temple. Visit some of the holy temples of the city which encapsulates the ambience and the spirit of the city. Highlights include the Durga Temple, better known as the ‘monkey temple’ on account of the large number of monkeys residing there and the Temple of Vishwanath (or Visheshwar, Lord of the Universe). If time permits before returning to the hotel visit some of the silk brocade and weaving centres – a specialty of Varanasi.
Return to hotel for breakfast.
Later in the afternoon proceed on an excursion to Sarnath. Sarnath 10 Kms. from the centre of the city, Sarnath symbolizes the birth of Buddhism. It was here that Buddha revealed his doctrine and founded his monastic community. The museum at Sarnath is amongst the most important in India and contains carvings representing a whole range of styles – archaic, the Mathura School, Gupta, past Gupta and Medival – covering work of sculptors from the 3rd century B.C. to the 12th century A.D.
