Varanasi also known as, Benares or Kashi is a city on the banks of the Ganga in Uttar Pradesh, 320 km. south-east of the state capital, Lucknow. It is the holiest of the seven sacred cities (Sapta Puri) in Hinduism and Jainism; it is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Varanasi is also known as the city of Lord Shiva as it has been mentioned in the Rig-Veda. The Kashi Naresh (Maharaja of Kashi) is the chief cultural patron of Varanasi, and an essential part of all religious celebrations. The culture of Varanasi is closely associated with the Ganges. The city has been a cultural centre of North India for several thousand years, and has a history that is older than most of the major world religions.
The Benares Gharana here is also famous for music, and many prominent Indian philosophers, poets, writers, and musicians live or have lived in Varanasi. Gautama Buddha gave his first sermon at Sarnath, located near Varanasi. It is the spiritual capital of India known by many names including Kashi mentioned in the Skanda Purana (used by pilgrims dating from Buddha's days), kasika (the shining one), Avimukta ("never forsaken" by Shiva), Anandavana (the forest of bliss), and Rudravasa (the place where Rudra/Siva resides).The luminous city is an eminent seat of learning. In one verse, Shiva says, "The three worlds form one city of mine, and Kasi is my royal palace therein." the name Kashi may be translated as "City of Light". Scholarly books have been written in the city. The current temples and religious institutions in the city are dated to the 18th century. One of the largest residential universities of Asia, the Banaras Hindu University (BHU), is located here. Since the ages it has been the unique source of knowledge and even the trend continues today, having Sampurnanand Sanskrit University- a center for Sanskrit learning, Vedas, ancient shastras and Indian Philosophy and Mahatma Gandhi Kashi Vidyapeeth for emerging subjects of today. The archaeological remains suggest that the Varanasi area was populated by Vedic people. However recent excavation are at Aktha and Ramnagar, two sites very near to Varanasi, show them to be from 1800 BC, suggesting Varanasi started to be inhabited by that time too. Varanasi was also home to Parshva, the 23rd Jain Tirthankara and the earliest Tirthankara accepted as a historical figure in the 8th century BC .It is famous for its Ghats, for its Lakkhi Mela, for its spirited way of life. By joining ASHOKA you will experience all the above.
