    Varanasi – amongst the oldest living cities in the world, is also the holiest of Hindu pilgrimages. Thousands of devotees come here daily to the banks of River Ganges to take a ritual dip and cleanse their souls and to worship at its many temples. It is not just important for Hindus but has links with Buddhism and Jainism as well. It was at Sarnath that Buddha preached his sermon and Lord Mahavir revealed his Jain Philosophy at Kashi-nearby.
