Day 2:
At dawn, visit the sacred Ganges for a boat ride. Every morning at dawn, hundreds of worshipers can be seen bathing in the sacred waters. The great river banks are lined with an endless chain of stone steps — the ghats — that stretch from one end of the city to the other. Believing that anyone who dies in the river of life in Varanasi gains freedom from the cycle of birth and death, the site has become a haven for the sick and aged waiting out their final days. The smoke that billows from the crematoriums on the edge of the river gives testimony to their final release from life's earthly confines. Your boat docks at Manikarnika (cremation) Ghat. On any given day, anywhere from a few dozen to a few hundred corpses are cremated here; the ghat is assiduous with activity as the cremated bodies threw up smoke and fire.

In the afternoon, visit several temples and the Hindu University at Benares. First stop is the Bharat Mata (temple of Mother India). Inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi, it features a huge marble map of India on the ground floor. Next up, is the Durga Temple. Known for its bright red color and the monkeys that run amok there, the Durga Temple is one of the most imposing architectural monuments in Varanasi.

The university, which occupies a large piece of land at the southern end of town, is also home to the New Vishwanatha Temple. The New Temple is modern in design and open to Hindus and non-Hindus alike. Surrounded by palm trees, it is a white marble structure that shines in the afternoon sun against a pale blue sky. Inside, the temple is spacious and airy. The interior walls are covered with Vedic art above inscriptions from the Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads. In the center of the first floor is the Shiva linga.

In the evening, you will visit the ghats of Varanasi to witness the performance of Ganges aarti. Enjoy a special evening cruise on the Ganges to see the Hindu devotees performing puja with lamps. 

Overnight: Hotel in Varanasi

Day 3:
After breakfast and check-out, you'll travel to the Buddhist center of Sarnath, roughly 8 miles (13km) northeast of Varanasi. Visit the Dhamekh Stupa, where Buddha gave his first ceremony after enlightenment; Chaukhandi Stupa; the deer park; and Sarnath Archaeological Museum. Finish your day with a drive back to back to Varanasi. Then, transfer to the airport to connect your flight to Delhi .
