In addition, with Tourist Travel you can experience India’s holiest city, Varanasi, due to its location on the Ganges River. It is said that if one bathes in the Ganges river at Varanasi, which is the city of the Hindu god Shiva, one’s sins will be forgiven. Here you will also get an insight into the Indian culture by e.g. the special evening ceremony, Aarti. Sarnath is located north of Varanasi and is a Buddhist place of pilgrimage, known as the place where the Buddha taught his first disciples and gave his first sermon. The immediate greatest cultural experience in India is the unique and mighty tomb monument, Taj Mahal. In the surrounding area there is an incredible calm despite the many tourists.
