Varanasi is the oldest living city in the world. This stairway to heaven can boast a rich history and spirituality. Experience all of this in this tour as you walk through the city.
The tour takes you on a walk through the mystical land of Varanasi, exploring different ashrams and temples, each with a different story, within the city. The tour starts from Assi Ghat, considered the seat of Lord Shiva. Explore the southern part of the city with an experienced and a friendly guide as you learn the history and the significance of this pious city. Walk past the magical ponds which are as old as 2,200 years and, even better, take a dip in them. You will see many famous temples like the Monkey Temple and Tulsi Manas Temple. The entire Ramayana, the ancient Hindu epic poem, is engraved on the marble of Tulsi Manas Temple; even the original copy of the manuscript is carefully preserved here, and you have the rare opportunity to have it shown to you.
