Varanasi is also known as Banaras and Kashi. The city is the oldest and continuously growing city in the world and also said to be the city of Lord Shiva.
Lord Shiva is the main deity of Hindus, who is considered a symbol of creation and destruction. Varanasi is one of the holiest cities in Hinduism. There is a great belief in Hinduism about this city that if a person comes here and dies or has his last rites in Kashi, then he attains Moksha i.e. that person is liberated from the cycle of birth and death. Therefore, this place is also known as Mukti Sthal.
Regarding Varanasi, people have an unwavering belief that if we take a dip in the holy river Ganges flowing here, all sins are washed away.
For many tourists, a dip in the Ganges at sunrise and sunset is a unique and memorable experience. Aarti is organized every evening at the main ghats of Varanasi.
The most attractive aspect of this mysterious city is that all the creations and rituals are completed at the main ghats here, in which every work is well organized and concluded, people take a dip in the Ganges, the aarti, the cremation of dead bodies. They are also given a bath.
Apart from these activities, you can also see people playing sports like yoga, massage, shaving, and cricket on the banks of the river here.
