Dear Friends,

I want to visit Varanasi during Dushera and thus reaching there on 19th afternoon. I have to take a flight back on 25th.

I have 5 and a half days. I want to absorb as mush culture of the place as possible. The places I want to visit are:
1.All important ghats- either by walk or boat rides
2. Ramnagar- for ramlila and the fort
3. Sarai Mohan- Place where silk sarees are woven. (How to reach?)

Is there anything that I should not miss? I have ordered the book by Diana after reading a lot of suggestions here..

I also need help with- When does the Ramlila start everyday at Ramnagar? Is it safe for me to go alone as I have read that crowd is crazy during Dushera?

How to reach Sarai Mohan?

Please suggest places that is filled with the old culture and its essence.

Please do help

Thank you

Hi Rachana

Welcome to Varanasi..must visit the following.

Attending Ganga ghat aarti is a must,mainly at Dashaswamedh ghat..

Go to assi ghat quite early in the morning....

As you are coming on the occasion of dusshera, watch the burning of Ravana at DLW, bharat milap at nati imli...

Visit vishwanath temple,sankat mochan temple, manas mandir,where tulsidas written the epic Ramayana while sitting their.

You can also go to the vishwanath galli,where u can do shopping.

If you are interested in historical places, you can visit sarnath.

Near by Varanasi ,you can also go to vindhyachal and Bhadoi,where you can find varieties of carpet.

Lots of other places. viz; devdari, Rajdari waterfall are also their.

Sitamani is also near by Varanasi....

Blue lassii shop is very famous their,where you can get varieties of lassii....
Enjoy the breakfast with kachodii , jalebii.
