To start a day in Varanasi beside the Ganges is to follow the routine people of Varanasi have observed for time immemorial. The common sight of the rising sun bathing the waters in gold and red here becomes special because of the river’s status in the Hindu world. A boat ride on the Ganges is a great way to get a feel of the river Hindus to call Ganga Maa, Mother Ganga.

Sarnath, located only 10 kilometers from the throbbing Varanasi, seems ever ready to host another great philosopher’s speech. Its large gardens filled with bird and scurrying squirrel press upon the visitors the gift of tranquility. Here, silence needs no prompting. The historical and spiritual significance of the fact that the Buddha delivered his first sermon somewhere in this expanse of gardens makes you more attentive to the surroundings. The senses are equally engaged by the hulking remain of the 34meter-high Dhamekh Stupa. Although the present edifice dates back to 500 AD, excavations of the site have yielded bricks dating back to 200 BC. The ruins of a large monastery and the partial Ashokan pillar all hark back to the heyday of Buddhism in the area.
The ghats of Varanasi are the venue of all the various spectacles associated with Hinduism. At any time, it is peopled with astrologers, mantra-chanting priests and their clients, barbers shaving heads, people stripping down for a dip in the holy waters of the Ganges and, if you’re near the cremation ghats, funeral pyres devouring the deceased. But as darkness falls on the ghats, people take their seats beside the dais where priests perform the ancient Hindu ritual of aarti. To the accompaniment of bhajans (devotional songs) and the rhythmic clapping of the devotees, the priests perform elaborate movements with large lamp holders in which burn several oil lamps. Senses often fall captive to the sinuous movements of the lamps and their glow on the surface of the Ganges.

Kanak Bhawan Temple in Ayodhya is dedicated to Lord Ram and his divine consort Goddess Sita. The magnificence of this place and the deities installed in the sanctum leave the devotees spell bound.

The history of the temple dates back to Treta Yug. According to local legends, Queen Kaikayi, Lord Rama’s stepmother had gifted this palace to Goddess Sita, her newly arrived daughter-in-law and stepson Rama.
Ayodhya is not only the birthplace of Lord Rama but is also held on high esteem because of its association with Jainism as a religion. Several followers of the Jainism faith from all over India frequent Ayodhya every year. This is because of the fact that there are several Jain temples in Ayodhya.

One such Triveni Sangam, in Prayagraj (Allahabad), has the confluence of three rivers — the Ganges, the Yamuna and a third mythical river the Saraswati. In Hindu tradition, Triveni Sangam is the "confluence" of three rivers. The point of confluence is a sacred place for Hindus, with a bath here said to flush away all of one's sins and free one from the cycle of rebirth. Close to the Prayagraj Fort is another attraction the Bade Hanumanji Temple. Also known as Lete Hanuman Temple, it enshrines a 20-ft-long idol of the deity, in a supine or reclining position. It is the only temple of its kind in the world where Lord Hanuman is worshipped in this position. Legend has it that after burning Lanka, as mentioned in the epic Ramayana, Lord Hanuman was tired and on the insistence of Goddess Sita, laid down to rest at the site where now stands the red-stone temple. What's interesting about this shrine is that the idol of the lord appears some six to seven ft under the ground in a pit bordered by red-orange pillars and fences. Once the residence of the Nehru family, it is said that the estate of Anand Bhawan was bought by Motilal Nehru, the father of the former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, after his older house, Swaraj Bhawan, started serving as the offices of Congress.
