Travel Blogs from Varanasi

Varanasi as fascinating as it is filthy

A travel blog entry by heathermatthews


... I saw one in Chennai who did not walk but rolled everywhere as his means of locomotion. I don't know how he survived the traffic. There is a picture of my feet in the Ganges. Dawn and sunset are blissful times on the Ghats.

There are two ghats dedicated to burning bodies but on the rest life is quite blissful. People, play cricket, walk with loved ones, bathe in the holy ...

The holy city

We ventured out to see the Aarti , the prayer ritual carried out daily by a line of holy ...

The Oldest City on Earth

A travel blog entry by steve_julie


... second floor balcony a man opens his window to taunt a family of monkeys with his leftovers. All of the windows in Varanasi have bars to protect the residents from "monkey terror." Street food stands crank propane flames, tiny convenience stores stand open though there seems to be one for every citizen. Up a few blocks, through two traffic circle rotaries - we're not in New Jersey anymore either; these things are a demolition derby - and a left into a piece of a street and there ...
