Its narrow lanes are filled with temples, fabulous food outlets, cows and bulls standing midway and numerous people flocking here and there. Varanasi is also called the "Galiyon ka sheher", meaning the city of lanes, "the city of temples", "the religious capital of India"
Walking the ghats and alleyways or watching sunrise from a boat can be unforgettable. Don't miss the morning and evening aarti at the ghats. The local markets offer a wide variety of street food - from jalebis in the morning with tabti wali lassi to tamatar ki chaat in the evening - you just can't miss the food here. You should visit the Kashiviswanath temple and the beautiful BHU campus if you are here.
