Kashi Walk—A Tour of Then and Now

Kashi, or Varanasi as it is known, is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legends, and looks twice as old as all of them put together. Alleys of Varanasi are a journey into the old, forgotten heritage of the oldest living city. This walk is a peek into the town where a five-feet wide alley used to be widest road of Varanasi in the ancient time. Walking in some of the oldest markets, narrow and mystical alleys of Varanasi will take you to a hidden world of chaos and contentment.

 

This guided tour is free.
