The Holy City of Varanasi – Benares

The Holy City of Varanasi also known as Benares is situated on the west bank of the Mystical Ganges river. The City is a very important religious place for both Hindus and Buddhists. 

According to Indian Mythology, it was founded by Lord Shiva (The God of destruction) more than 5000 years ago.

Mark Twain once said : “Benares is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice as old as all of them put together.”

Varanasi is nowadays also a very popular location for Bollywood Movies.
