The holiest of Hindu cities, this is where life and death, the surreal and the mundane, come together in striking contrast… for millennia, this destination has been a hub of philosophy, theosophy, medicine and learning—today is no different.
Varanasi is a chaotic mélange of pilgrims, tourists, trident-toting ash-smeared sadhus, cycle rickshaws, and boats and temples painted over with advertisements for various brands of oil. Revered as the abode of Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati. Immersed with ancient culture and history, it’s widely believed to be the oldest—continuously—inhabited city on Earth.
