Episode 14 | Varanasi | Gayi, Ghat & Ghanti
“Any travel blogger who wants to prove themselves India worthy has ventured into the dark, winding alleyways of ancient Varanasi.”
-Abhishek on “Varanasi”
Varanasi is where the ancient and modern collide in 21st Century India. Hear about the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world with 5000 years of history. From Buddha’s first sermon, to the winding alleyways filled with snacks, music and temple bells, Varanasi is a place where the raw emotions of human life and death are discovered.
