Varanasi is considered one of the holiest cities in the country, attracting millions of tourists. This city is of importance to the rich histories of Buddhism and Hinduism, which is why you can find countless historical places here. Particularly, Hindus believe that those who die here attain salvation. Locals and pilgrims perform rituals along the river Ganges, which is embanked with ghats. At dusk, people rent boats to watch priests perform a Hindu worship ritual, Ganga Aarti, at Dashashwamedh Ghat. With many unique things to do, Varanasi is the place to be. If you’re visiting, check out the top Airbnb vacation rentals in Varanasi, India, below.
