Attractions from

Ghats (crematories) (Benares)
One of the main attractions in Varanasi is the long row of Ghats that are along the western banks of the Ganges. Most of them are used to bath from, but some of them are used for cremating. The locals usually do not mind if you would like to witness a cremation, but they do not appreciate photographing of the ceremony.
The River Ganges (Benares)
The River Ganges is one of the most popular destinations for travelers in the area. A trip on the river at dawn creates a very special light that draws a fantastic landscape. There are tour boats that will take you down the river, or you can rent a personal guide with a boat.
The Vishwanath Temple (Benares)
It is also called Golden Temple. This temple is the most sacred in Varanasi and it is in honor of Vishveswara, master of the universe. The temple was built in 1776 and its towers are gilded with more than 800 kilos of gold.
