Local Attractions

Varanasi is a magnificent city rising from the western bank of River Ganga. People call it Kashi - the luminous, City of Light. The temples and shrines, ashrams and pavilions that stretch along the river for over three miles are golden in the early morning.Long flight of steps called Ghats bring thousands of worshipers down to the river to bathe at dawn. In the narrow lanes at the top of these steps moves the unceasing earthly drama of life and death, which the Hindus call Samsara, but here from the perspective of the Ganga River, there is a vision of the transcendence and liberation, which the Hindus call Moksha.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"By the way, I was very pleased with your site's service! It turned out that our group got a better room price reservation at a comparable hotel to the one we were considering. Since our small jazz band doesn't really have any budget to speak of, price was an important consideration and thanks to your service we were able to save money without sacrificing on the quality and amenities of the hotel. Thanks again! We'll be using you again, I'm sure, for future trips." D.R. - Auburn, WA
