Varanasi is one of the oldest living cities in the world. Glorified by myth and legend and sanctified by religion, Varanasi draws pilgrims and spiritual seekers. The rays of the dawn shimmering across the Ganges, the holy waters splashing the ghats, the banks bathed in golden hue, the resounding temple bells, the fragrance of incense in the air make for an uplifting experience. Observing a rich tradition of art and craft, music and as a centre of learning, it is also famous for its silk weaving industry – the Banarasi silk saris. and silk brocades. Though Varanasi retains its antique feel, the city is fast changing. New markets, commercial complexes and modern hotels adorn its streets. Just eight kilometre away is Sarnath, where Lord Buddha preached his first sermon after attaining enlightenment.
