Where you’ll be

Varanasi, UP, India

The Boutique Heritage Homestay ,a heritage Villa ,is situated in the old city about 1.8 kilometre from the nearest Ghat (Panchganga Ghat -which is around 20-25 minutes walk from our place or 5 mins by tuk tuk to Chowk & then a 10 mins walk) to the river Ganges.The location and the ambience are ideal. You can experience peace, tranquility and nature in full bloom in the heart of the city at Nawab Ki Deohri -the palace of the Nawabs- an historic place in its own right which finds mention in the history books on Varanasi. Historic places like Kabir Chaura Math (mutt), where the mediaeval worker saint Kabir lived and preached, is a stone's throw away. Also very nearby is the famous Bara Ganesh temple (150 metres) dedicated to the elephant god. An Interesting place in the neighborhood is the Spice Market (Gola Dina Nath -150 m). After 5 mins of walk you reach the hustle and bustle of Maidagin (tuktuk/auto rickshaw stand -300 metres) from where the way leads to the cremation ghat (Manikarnika ghat-1.9 km), Kashi Vishwanath Temple (the Golden Temple-1 km),the old British buildings - Town hall, Kotwali police station and the Head Post Office, Mahamrityunjay (500 metres) & Kalbhairav temples (500 metres) and numerous temples greatly revered by the Hindus. The river Ganges is a 20/25 mins walk ,through the narrow bylanes/alleyways , from our place where you can discover the majestic ghats and palaces on the ghats. The central ghat (Dashashwamedh Ghat) is about 2 kms and can be easily reached by tuk tuk or pedal rickshaw.(all distances are approximate distances from the homestay). LahuraBir (1.5 kms) market and Godowliya market (1.5 kms) have several restaurants both vegetarian and non vegetarian.
Kabir Chauraha the neighbouring locality is the home of the Banaras Gharana of musicians where many award winning PadmaBhushan and Padma vibhushan have either lived or are still living. Early in the morning or in the evenings one can hear classical Hindustani music reyaz ( practice) coming out of the houses of the Banaras Gharana musicians. Also not far away is the home of the famous shehnai musician Bharat Ratna Ustad Bismillah Khan.
