VARANASI 2

After boat ride we visited Kashi Vishwanath temple and other temples. Kashi Vishwanath is the important temple in Kashi. We walked through narrow lanes, which lead us to the temple complex through heavily secured army due it sensitiveness close to mosque. Shoes, handbag, camera, telephone and other metal objects are not allowed inside temple. We safe keep in the locker, just beside the temple. Then we walked barefoot through dirty lanes. Security is very tight, we were checked at 3 different security point before entering the temple.

Later we visited other parts of Varanasi before witnessing Ganga Arthi.
