One of the greatest seven holy cities for Hindus, Varanasi is a view to behold. It is an exhausting, releasing, and uninhibited knowledge; all at the same time. The enormous temples & ghats and the other popular places to visit in Varanasi attract millions of tourists year after year. Not only is it a popular destination among the Indian travelers, strangers love it too.

Although the city is known for its ghats, temples, and music (yes, the music too), there are many other celebrated places in Varanasi that must be seen and knowledgeable on your Varanasi trip.

Assi Ghat

Located far south, Assi Ghat is where travelers pay homage to Lord Shiva by worshipping a huge lingam situated under a peepal tree. This ghat is a lively space, swelling in chaos and commotion and one that brightly captures the ancientness of Kashi. Among the most famous religious places in Varanasi, Assi Ghat is a must visit. The alluring sight of the arti here makes Varanasi one of the most beautiful cities in India.

Dashashwamedh Ghat

The main ghat in Varanasi on the Ganges River, Dashashwamedh Ghat is a showy place known for its mystical wholeness. It is common knowledge that Lord Brahma sacrificed 10 horses in a yajna here, and thus the name. Dashashwamedh Ghat tops the list of tourist places in Varanasi as it is a compelling space to dawdle in this small town. Be here for the Agni Pooja or Ganga aarti, as it is popularly called.

Manikarnika Ghat

Reflected to be a favorable place to be consumed, Manikarnika Ghat is among the pivotal places of attention in Varanasi.
