Above is a view of the ancient Benaras city and the River Ganga.
Varanasi or Kashi as has been known to Hindus since the times immemorial, is the abode of Shiva. Yet it is a pity that Kashi Vishvanath Mandir has faced so much destruction and rebuilding over the centuries. The city of temples where Hindus believe Ganga to have the power to wash away the sins of the mortals. The seekers wish to die on the land of Varanasi would attain salvation and freedom from the cycle of birth and re-birth.
