Overview

Nothing can show the real India like temple and rituals. Varanasi is the placenta of Hinduism in India. Hindus consider River Ganges as the river from heaven. Many temples were built along the side the river and even today, the people are more connected with the river. Buddha’s early life after enlightenment is very much connected to Sarnath. Many years after the life of Lord Buddha, numerous kings visited Saranth to build stupas and monuments. Bodhgaya and Gaya are linked to both Hinduism and Buddhism. Allahabad is the place where three iconic rivers of India meet and it is considered as a sacred spot by Hindus. The tour stretches for six days and five nights.
