Explore the Heart of  Varanasi

 The bylanes of Varanasi are just as famous as its temples. Celebrated in mainstream songs, Varanasi is a city of winding alleys with bustling markets, each specialising in something. Fabrics, metalware, milk products, snacks, sweetmeats, handicrafts, wedding decorations, temple paraphernalia, bangles – Varanasi has it all. The bazaars are at their colourful best in the evening and best explored on foot and by cycle-rickshaw.
