Seeking salvation in Kashi

Reviewed 27 February 2013
Benares is a famous city in India also known as Kashi. There are a lot of thing to do there like temple hopping, going for boat rides as well as marveling the forts. The city is popular for temples and ghats. People generally go to Benares to perform the last rites of their loved ones. It was so sad to see the pollution of the Ganges. If you go for a boat ride you can see the dirt and filth around the ghats.
