(Varanasi, or Benaras, (also known as Kashi) is one of the oldest living cities in the world dating to the 11th century B.C. Varanasi`s is also known as the spiritual capital of India. Mark Twain, the English author and literature, who was enthralled by the legend and sanctity of Benaras, once wrote : “Benaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together.” The city is a center of learning and civilization for over 3000 years. With Sarnath, the place where Buddha preached his first sermon after enlightenment, just 10 km away, Varanasi has been a symbol of Hindu renaissance. Knowledge, philosophy, culture, devotion to Gods, Indian arts and crafts have all flourished here for centuries. One can feel by self once you walk and wind through the streets of Varanasi.
