Varanasi or Banaras is not a city its emotion, people come to explore this city but they loose themselves in this city, People say that this city should be felt not to explore. When you sit along the banks of river you will realize your existence, when you will visit the Baba Vishwanth temple you will feel the dense atmosphere of that temple. When you will visit the Manikarnika ghat Mahashmashan of Varanasi a place where death is celebrated, you will know the truth of Life. A recommendation by Mahatarpan, if you want to feel Banaras, leave every worldly thing to your home, come without anything, don’t take hotels to live, sleep at ghats, walk along the ghats, talk to locals, participate in all the Aarti’s of temples like baba Vishwanth temple, bhu temples.
