Dev Dipawali - A Festival of Lights

Dev Dipawali - A Festival of Lights-1

No city in the world is as complex and yet simple like Varanasi. The simplicity and the mystical aura of the city makes it worth visiting. At one point you will be submerged in the chaos on the streets, and soon after the calmness of the Ganga will sooth you.

Banaras is not a one time visit. One needs to come here again and again, and surprise yourself every time.

Mark Twain writes, "Banaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together".

Dev Diwali is an occasion when gods descend upon Earth and take bath in holy Ganges. This is an beautiful moment to visit Banaras because all the ghats of the town are decorated with illuminated lamps.

There are regular trains running to Banaras from New Delhi. You can travel overnight to reach here. Best and cheapest accommodations are available at Asi Ghat. There are a lot of rooftop Guest Houses from where you can see the Ganga flowing below. It is an amazing sight in the morning.

If you wish to visit Banaras or Varanasi during Dev Diwali then you should make sure that all your bookings are done in advance. You must take out time for boating as it is the spectacle from the middle of the river.
