Best restaurants in Varanasi.
Varanasi is also known as Benaras, Kashi. Varanasi is a city in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh dating to the 11th century B.C. Regarded as the spiritual capital of India, the city draws Hindu pilgrims who bathe in the Ganges River’s sacred waters and perform funeral rites. Along the city’s winding streets are some 2,000 temples, including Kashi Vishwanath, the “Golden Temple,” dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva.
Due to its religious importance & spiritual tourism, the Varanasi is the hot spot for national & international tourists. One of the other feature of this city is that that is the constituency of Indian Prime Minister Sh. Narender Modi. The city is fast developing and so is the FOOD scene .
