Tour Details

India is the country with the longest and most continuous spiritual tradition in the world, Sanatana Dharma is the oldest religion, the Vedas are the oldest spiritual scriptures and yoga the oldest spiritual practice for the realization of God. Like the immortality of the soul, India’s spiritual life force is constant, eternal and imperishable. Filled with spiritual treasures, India today is also able to prove its worth and courage. India is a separate “world” …
Excuse yourself from Shiva, a Hindu deity who would have created Varanasi some 5,000 years ago, when he set foot in the most sacred city in the country. On the ghats, extensive staircases facing the mythical Ganges River, the interesting, chaotic and authentic local life takes place: daily washing of clothes, spiritual baptism baths, dramatic outdoor cremations, sadhus ceremonies – Indian holy men. This is where Varanasi shows his strength early in the morning, when devotees take a boat in prayer during the sunrise. In the maze of streets behind the ghats, the colorful bazaars that sell mainly exquisite silks, yoga schools, hotels and restaurants of all kinds pulsate. And, of course, the shrines and altars for the thousand gods of Hinduism.
