City Of Temples- Varanasi



Varanasi is one of the holiest cities in India for Hindus and one of the ancient cities in the world and it’s called as “City of Temples”. When I was visited Varanasi (also called as Kashi), I was really shocked to see how many temples are there. And every temple tells you a story and history of Hinduism.
One of the attractions at Varanasi/ Kashi is Ganga (River Gange) Arthi which is basically an offering (Pooja) to various Hindu gods (Agni, Sun (Surya), Earth (Bhudevi), Varuna (Water),Wind, and Goddess Ganges ). Ganga Arthi timings in the summer is 7 PM and in the winters, it’s at 6 PM. Generally Arthi lasts for 45 mins. When I was visited Varanasi I have captured a videowhich is uploaded to YouTube



Honestly I say that all these temples requires well maintenance to attract more tourists and it’s a great opportunity for Indian/ State government to attract tourist and help locals with jobs. Interestingly Indian Prime Minister is representing the Varanasi constituency in parliament but surprised to see the situation of Varanasi (Hygiene) and he could do more.
