Our Mission

Our Mission is to promote the local culture, art & stories among the youngsters. To connect one of the most ancient cities to the advanced world by creating a forefront platform.

Our Story

Our journey started in January 2018 with an Instagram account created to share short snippets from the daily life of Varanasi. As we continued to share the stories from Varanasi a lot more people joined us in no time. After listening to the problems that modern explorers and city dwellers face with respect to the knowledge available about Varanasi our website was launched as a solution. Since then we haven’t looked back and a lot many people like you have joined us as contributors.

Our Team


Saurabh Rastogi

Founder/Marketing Head

A Delhite on paper but a Banarasi from birth & the heart, I am a marketing professional with a knack for creating visuals & stories. When not at Ghats, streets & my work desk I can be found amid mountains and wilderness.

An Anesthesiologist but a self taught artist from Kashi(Varanasi), currently pursuing my career as both, as an artist and a doctor in Delhi. Mythology and Varanasi are core subject of my paintings. The heritage and legacy of Varanasi keeps inspiring me to find the hidden, less known facts.
