The “Kashi & Gaya Yatra” package is perfect for people looking to explore the most holistic exploration through Siddhartha Gautama’s journey. While in Varanasi, we’ll go to Sarnath, where Buddha was said to have taught Dharma the first time. We won’t miss the beautiful Ghats in Varanasi and the fantastic evening Ganga Aarti. And then, in Bodhgaya, we’ll go to Mahabodhi Temple Complex in Bodhgaya, revered as the place where Gautama Buddha achieved enlightenment. The ancient temple is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and features architectural wonders, but don’t let this make you think the ancient university of Nalanda won’t surprise you. As the center of education in the ancient world, you’ll love walking through the millennium-old ruins. We’ll also visit the capital city of ancient kingdom Magadha, Rajgir.

This ceremony has become a popular sight as the spectacular ritual takes place every evening in the city of Varanasi. Once the crowd disperses, we walk down the streets to Godowlia Crossing, a perfect place to enjoy local specialties, such as Lassi or Thandai. Lassi is a blended drink made of dahl, and spices, often with added fruits, while Thandai is perfect for hot weather as rose petals, almonds, watermelons, and other refreshing ingredients are mixed with milk and sugar.

You can see an idol of the goddess carved in the 18th century that had traveled across the seas and finally returned to Varanasi. Then we’ll visit one of the oldest Shiva temples in Varanasi, Kaal Bhairav Temple. Also Durga Temple, which is also called the Monkey temple, that features multi-tiered shikhara and incredible North Indian Nagara architecture design. You also don’t want to miss Tulsi Manas Temple that is blessed with a beautiful view of the city and significantly important historical value in Hinduism.
  • Sankat Mochan Temple that is dedicated to the Hindu God Hanuman is another must-see holy temple founded in the 16th century and is one of the oldest Hindu shrines in Varanasi. We’ll also see Birla Temple, which is a modern-day temple located inside Banaras Hindu University (BHU) and is dedicated to Lord Shiva. While in BHU, we’ll also enter Bharat Kala Bhavan, the university museum that displays culturally and historically important knowledge about art and culture of India. Then we’ll go to Bharat Mata temple which is located inside the campus of Mahatma Gandhi Kashi Vidyapeeth. It is one of the rare temples where instead of idols, it has the carving of undivided India’s map in marble instead and is dedicated to Bharat Mata, or the “Mother India.”
  • After lunch, we’ll visit Sarnath, a small village located about 10 km from the holy city. It is well-known as where Gautama Buddha first taught the Dharma. Now, it’s a deer park adorned with Buddhist monuments and excavation spots.

Bodhgaya is located in the outskirt of Gaya and is said to be the location where Siddhartha Gautama attained his enlightenment, hence “The City of Enlightenment.” It is one of four well-known holy sites in Buddhism.
