I think the most interesting thing was the beautiful people, their distinctive dress and look, made for some great pictures.
Varanasi is a noted center fine silks and brocaded fabrics, exquisite saris, brassware, jewelry, woodcraft, carpets, wall hangings, lamp shades and masks of Hindu and Buddhist deities are some of Varanasi's shopping attractions.
Varanasi has several small cottage industries, including Banarasi silk sari making, the production of textiles such as hand-woven carpets, and handicrafts
Banarasi Silk is known all over the world for its finery and softness. Banarasi Sarees are adorned with intricate designs and zari embellishments making it popular during traditional functions and weddings. Earlier, the embroidery on sarees were often done with threads of pure gold.
We found many people purchasing many different items during our walk.
