Varanasi Spiritual Walking Tour

Description

A spiritual walking tour through the lanes and ghats of Varanasi is the actual essence of the place. People across the world come and explore Varanasi every year in the hope to achieve salvation and find peace. The walking tour starts bright and early at 6 am by assembling at the iconic 'Assi Ghat'. From there we move towards the 'Akhadas', the traditional practice ground made up of soil for 'pehelwans' which is the local terminology of wrestlers. The first-hand experience of witnessing these pehelwans getting on with their art at the start of the day is truly riveting. It also sheds light on the local culture of these Akhadas. After this, it's time to witness an interesting setting. You will find a local garment shop with a bull blending in with shoppers. Bulls are considered sacred according to Hindu mythology as Lord Shiva's chariot is a bull. The bull in the shop is treated with respect and tolerance. 

Varanasi is full of quirks. Next, you will stumble upon the numerous clinics of Varanasi on the road. You will see a series of roadside clinics with dentists treating patients without any formal arrangements. For the uninitiated, the setting is sure to surprise. The quirks continue as Varanasi keeps unfolding in front of us. Next, witness the famous 'Facebook Baba'. This unique sage mixes technology with spirituality as he chats with his devotees from all over the world. Things you find only in Varanasi. 

The next is a more meditating destination. Kashi Labh Mukti Bhawan is a place where people from all over the world come in hope to take their last breath in Varanasi. The sanctity of Varanasi makes all this worthwhile. Then, it's time to visit the famous temple of Sant Ravidas. The legend of Saint Ravidas is very intriguing. He stood up against caste-based untouchability. Finally, the spiritual tour ends with a visit to the Aghor Ashram. Their unique way of life and the philosophy of Aghori sadhus are a fascinating tale. 
Advisory:
Keeping in mind the spirituality of the place and the whole context of the tour, it is advisable to dress modestly and cover your legs and shoulders so as to not hurt the religious sentiments and the beliefs of the local culture.
