Does such a place exist? I'm looking for somewhere for my mother to stay. We're in Varanasi now but the air quality isn't doing her any favours.

Ideally we would find somewhere close to the river, maybe a little bit out of town with a garden or nice outdoor space where she will be happy to relax for a few days. Would be great if the old town was tuktukable

Does such a place exist here?

How about Sarnath. Not on the river, but very relaxed and clean.

Assi Ghat is calmer than the central ones, and one can get taxis and autos (not tuk-tuks ) quite close to the guest houses. One thing I really liked at Assi Ghat was the daily morning Aarti followed by a classical music concert and a yoga session, all free.

The other extreme is near Rajghat, but the only place to stay I know there is the Krishnamurti Foundation - lovely but available for members only I think.

What does your mother want to do when she is there? That might help in choosing. Also, how mobile? Any central ghat apart from Dasaswamedha would be quite difficult to get to - and eveen that one has plenty of steps.
