I've been few times to Benares=Varanasi..oh yes..
I like to call this place Benares..it's a very spiritual place..
for Hindus certainly a point to die..on the Ganges riverside..
Benares looks like an old people's home..you would be surprised..
how many old devote Hindus..wanna die in Benares?
as told before in my journal on a previous visit here...
it's full of *holy* cows,little back alleys,ghat's,sadhu's..

my brother+sister in law stayed in a posh place..I believe Clark's??
I stayed in a less pricey hotel..but it was clean enough..
they could not believe their eyes..wandering through Benares..
it's a typical Indian town..with all its facets..that means..beggars..
tourists,crowds,noise,heat,dust..can be nerve wrecking..
I'll see if I can get a good link on this place...
I bet there are some links in other postings...
after this..we were gonna fly to Kathmandu via Patna..
and believe it or not..I got stuck in Patna for a night..
my brother+sister in law..flew alone to Kathmandu..
I was put up for 1 night in a 3 star hotel..
on behalf of the airlines..we were on request quota..
for the flight..I got my flight next day..
my brother was waiting for me at Kathmandu airport..
