1/45.- Welcome to Varanasi, India
Varanasi, also known as Benares or Banaras, is a city located in the north of India, in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The city, one of the oldest in the world, is sacred to Hindus.
If you had to visit only one destination in India, this should probably be Varanasi. The main attraction of Varanasi is the sacred River Ganges. The sights at sunrise, when pilgrims from all over India come here to do their devotions, are overwhelming.
If you are planning a trip to India, you should leave Varanasi as your last destination. After Varanasi, nothing you see will surprise you anymore.
