Had a fun trip to Varanasi over weekend. It was a 7 hours ride from Lucknow.

Varanasi is an ancient city. Its 81 ghaats are said to be thousands of years old. They find mention in Mahabharat too.

We also did Mangala Darshan at Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple. These are the first darshan of the day performed at 3am.

Boat rides from one ghat to another are amazing.
