Varanasi, called Benaras by the English is one of the oldest living cities in the world. Mark Twain, the English author and literateur, who was amazed by the legend and sanctity of Benaras, once wrote : "Benaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together"

Situated in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, Varanasi is also renowned for its rich tapestry of music, arts, crafts and education. Standing timelessly on the north bank of Ganga, Varanasi GhatVaranasi is located midway between Delhi and Kolkata. Known as the religious and cultural capital of India, Varanasi's known history dates back to about 3500 hundred years. However, Hindus believe that the city is eternal.
