Your guide will meet you at the hotel before sunrise, so you can witness the amazing spectacle which takes place on Varanasi's water front at the start of every day. The principal attraction of Varanasi is the long string of bathing Ghats, which line the west bank of the River Ganges.
Ghats are the steps which lead down to the river from which pilgrims make their sin-cleansing dip in the holy river and on which bodies are cremated. A boat ride on the Ganges at dawn, when it is full of pilgrims, is an amazing experience and your guide can explain to you the various rituals taking place.
Leave the boat after passing the most important Ghats and then continue to have a brief city tour to Banaras Hindu University, Golden Temple and Bharat Mata Temple which is dedicated to Mother India. After the early morning tour, return back to the hotel for breakfast. After breakfast, visit a local textile store famous for authentic silk and brocades.
Afternoon continue your tour to Sarnath, the holy city where Buddha preached his first sermon after attaining Enlightenment. The major events of Buddha's life are depicted in colorful wall paintings. Visit the Deer Park, Museum and Buddhist Temple.
