This website is based on my own experiences. I was born and bought in Varanasi. My childhood, my schooling, my colleging and professional life has all evolved around Varanasi. Varanasi is a part and parcel of my life. It is a mix of traditional culture and modern ideas. We have innumerable temples and festivals. Varanasi is my heart and soul. This website is a compilation of expressions and experiences of my relatives (of different generations) and friends. Especially my uncle who has been working as tourist guide for last 20 years was very helpful and gave enriching inputs.
Varanasi is one of the oldest and religious cities of the world. Every temple, every ghat, each monument and fort has history attached to it. I have tried to provide maximum information on historical and religious aspect of Varanasi. I, myself a Hindu Brahmin, a devotee of Mahadeva (Lord Shiva) in inspired and attached to Varanasi in a special way. I hope you will also experience same feelings while going through my site.
