Varanasi

 

Varanasi (formerly Benares) is located in [x] state, in [y] India…

The city is sacred to Hindus, and also one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world.

The city is centered on the Ganga (Ganges) River, and its famous ghats — series of steps leading down to the river, used by bathers and pilgrims.

The scene of pilgrims doing their devotions in the River Ganga at sunrise set against the backdrop of the centuries old temples is among the most impressive sights in all of India.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
