    Sarnath – 10km from Varanasi, is one of the most revered Buddhist pilgrimage centers. After attaining the Enlightenment at Bodh Gaya, it was here that Lord Buddha preached his first sermon, sanctified as Maha Dharm Chakra Pravartan. The great Dhamekh Stupa and several other structures stand testimony to the importance the place enjoyed at that time. The Chaukhandi Stupa is the place where, during his first visit to Sarnath, Lord Buddha met his first five disciples. The area is a treasure trove of archaeological findings such as Dharmrajika Stupa and Mulgandhkuti Vihar. The smooth glistening pillar established by Emperor Ashoka in 273-232 B.C. marks the foundation of the Buddhist Sangha, and the Lion Capital atop this pillar is now India’s National Emblem. Its reputation as a center of Buddhist learning spreads far and wide and is a revered location and a great attraction for tourists from across the world.

    Ghats of Varanasi – The  great  well constructed  river  banks  are called  Ghats.  On  these ghats, are  located  high pavilions, palaces, temples and terraces,  which  add further  charm to  the  beautiful river bank. The  ghats  are  frequented  by the people  which include early morning bathers, priests, people  practicing meditation and yoga, students and  tourists  as  well.  The  eternal crematorium is located  at  Manikarnika Ghat. It is  believed that  the person,  who  is  creamed at this place,   attains  salvation  from the cycle of  birth  and  death.  For centuries, pilgrims have traced the perimeter of the city by a ritual parikrama (circumambulation) paying homage to shrines on the way. Among the most popular routes is the Panchatirthi Yatra, which takes in the Pancha (five) Trithi (crossing) of Assi, Dashashwamedha, Adi Keshva, Panchganga and finally Manikarnika. The devotee, accompanied by a priest, recites a sankalpa (statement of intent) and performs a ritual at each stage of the journey.
    A  very relaxed  way  to see the ghats  and its  life  in  the  morning  and evening  is  by a boat.

    Kashi Vishwanath Temple – Also known as the Golden Temple, it is dedicated to Lord Shiva, the presiding deity of the city. Varanasi is said to be the point at which the first jyotirlinga, the fiery pillar of light by which Shiva manifested his supremacy over other gods, broke through the earth’s crust and flared towards the heavens. To reach here, tourists have to pass through Kashi Vishwanath Gali, famous for its shops selling pooja items and sweets. There’s also a popular ladies corner in its alleyway that tourists explore for affordable shopping. Adjacent to Kashi Vishwanath Mandir are Annapoorna Temple, Dundiraj Vinayak and Gyanwapi which is regularly frequented by  pilgrims.

    Banaras Hindu University – Bharat  Ratna Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya,  a  renowned  freedom  fighter  founded Banaras Hindu  University (BHU)  in  the year 1916. Dr. Annie Besant also  played an important role in the formation of this Central University. Over a period of time, it has developed into one of the greatest centers of learning in India. The BHU has produced many great freedom fighters and Nation builders. It has immensely contributed to the progress of the nation through a large number of renowned scholars, artists and scientists. Its campus is spread over 1300 acres. It has well maintained roads (crossing each other at right angle), extensive greenery, a temple, an airstrip and buildings, which are an architectural delight.
