5 Fascinating Sacred Destinations of India

Varanasi-City of Lord Siva


''Older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, And looks twice as old as all of them put togethe'' - Mark Twain.
Varanasi, the cultural capital of India is a city on the Banks of River Ganges in Uttar Pradesh, which is commonly known as Benares and Kashi. It is believed to be the city of Lord Siva, the God of creation as well as destruction and more than 3000 years have passed since this religious centre was discovered. Moreover, Hindu pilgrims also hold the belief that people who die here will be freed from the series of reincarnation. Vishwanath Temple, Bharat Mata Temple and Tulsi Manas Temple are the prime charms of this place.
