Cities of India: Varanasi
For more than 2 thousand years "the eternal City" Varanasi was the religious capital of India. Built on the shrine of Sacred Ganges, this very eastern city of Uttar Pradesh has been served by a place of ritual ablutions in the waters of the sacred river, and is also a place of ritual cremation of Hindus.
Here there is a lot of sacred Buddhism sites – a stone column and Stupa Dharmarajik, ladder stupa at the place of the first divine service of the Buddha, the jay church of Serynsanth, steps ("Gati") for ablution in the waters of Ganges, the temples of Vishvanath, Annapurna and Manmandir, the Mosque of Gyanvapi (XVII in.) and Alagir, as well as one of the best museums of India – Bhavan.
