Thank you, Varanasi Guru, for showing us the magic that lies beyond the obvious.
Had a great experience exploring the city Our guide, Saurabh, wasn't just a walking encyclopedia. He was a storyteller, weaving together history, myth, and personal anecdotes, bringing the stories of Varanasi's temples, palaces, and hidden gems to life. The walk wasn't a rigid itinerary. It ebbed and flowed like the Ganges itself, adapting to our curiosity and questions. We stumbled upon local rituals, tasted forgotten delicacies in bustling alleys, and even ventured into a hidden courtyard where generations of silk weavers continue their ancient craft. Every moment was a surprise, a window into the city's hidden soul. But beyond the sights and sounds, Varanasi Guru's walk offered something deeper. It was a meditation on life and mortality, played out on the stage of the ghats. As the sun dipped below the horizon, casting long shadows across the river, we witnessed the daily ritual of life and death, a stark reminder of impermanence and the enduring beauty of human connection.
