About Varanasi

Varanasi is a city in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh dating to the 11th century B.C. Regarded as the spiritual capital of India, the city draws Hindu pilgrims who bathe in the Ganges River’s sacred waters and perform funeral rites. Along the city's winding streets are some 2,000 temples, including Kashi Vishwanath, the “Golden Temple,” dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. Boat cruises take visitors past the many ghats on the waterfront, including the Dashashwamedh Ghat to watch the fiery aarti ritual, performed nightly. Manikarnika Ghat is the principal cremation ground of Varanasi, with 24-hour flaming funeral pyres. Another notable ghat is Man Mandir Ghat, topped by a large palace built-in 1600. Above the river, the Mughal-style Ramnagar Fort was the palace of the former Maharaja of Varanasi and is now a museum. About 11km north of town, Sarnath, where Buddha gave his first sermon at the site of Dhamekh Stupa, features ancient temples.

Best Time To Visit Varanasi

The best time to be in Varanasi is October to February end. The climate will be mild and there will be no rainfall and thus, sightseeing and traveling become easier. The second reason is the festivals that are enjoyed during this season. The summers are dry, sunny, and humid with the temperature ranging from 32°C to 46°C. People usually avoid traveling to Varanasi around this time; especially in the months of May and June as they are considered the hottest. Hot dry winds called ‘loo’ blow across the area, making it harder for the purpose of sightseeing. This season receives occasional showers too. Walking along the Panchganga Ghat in the evening is refreshing. 
Varanasi, with the onset of monsoon, experiences the fall in temperature, and the real beauty of the city comes in front in its drenched state. The monsoon in Varanasi is accompanied by heat, humidity, and moderate rainfalls. It is a bit difficult to travel around this time, but the tourists are attracted to the freshness and beauty of the place.

You can make the most of your trip to Varanasi by visiting around the winter season, the temperature ranges from 5°C to 15°C. The boat rides on the Ganga, visiting the different temples, and exploring the vibrant city is made double fun if done in the winter season.  Some great festivals of the country fall around this time and take pleasure in the customs and rituals of the locals.
