Varanasi

Varanasi, in India, is one of the most important cities in all of India and is one of the most continuously inhabited areas in the world. From the moment I got off the train, I was excited to start exploring this fascinating place. But unlike Bangkok or Delhi, where there are many different and famous attractions, Varanasi is less a leap from one famous site to another, but rather an absorption in the ancient city and the observation of people, ceremonies and life general (and death) is so obvious.

Just exploring the narrow alleys and observing things along the mystical Ganges river is more than enough to keep you occupied and fascinated during your visit to Varanasi. Be sure to also check out my Varanasi travel guide for more tips on visiting the city. Every evening at the Main Ghat is held the Pooja Ceremony, an exhibition conducted by Brahmins dedicated to Lord Shiva and the Ganga river. It starts around 18:00 in the evening and attracts a large crowd of Hindus and tourists every night.

Many people stand alone along the ghat steps, but others jump in the boat to see the ceremony from the water. Brahmins go through a series of rituals that include a lot of incense, fire, movements, ringing of bells and loud music in the background. It is certainly worth seeing at least once when you visit Varanasi.

Ellora And Ajanta

Ellora, known locally as Verul and mentioned as Elapura in medieval literature, is a group of 34 rock-cut caves in the Satpuda mountain ranges, about 30 km from the city of Aurangabad, in Maharashtra, India. It is the only rock complex where the rock temples of all the major religions of ancient India are located, namely Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism.

It seems that the site has throbbed with artistic activity for over 500 years (from the 5th to the 11th century AD), mainly under the patronage of the Kalachuri, Chalukya and Rashtrakuta dynasties and also the Bauddha sanghas. Unlike the nearby complex of caves of equal importance, namely Ajanta, Ellora was not lost by collective amnesia. It remained a living monument.

The first monuments of the Buddhist caves at Ajanta date back to the II and I century BC During the Gupta period (5th and 6th century AD), many other richly decorated caves were added to the original group. The paintings and sculptures of Ajanta, considered masterpieces of Buddhist religious art, have had considerable artistic influence.

Calcutta, the second largest city in India, is a perpetually continuous festival of human existence, at the same time luxurious and squalid, refined and frenetic, definitely futuristic, while magnificently ruined. A vibrant 350-year-old metropolis located on the east coast of India, the capital of West Bengal thrives on contradictions and impressive shows; nothing is trivial in this city. Famous as the city of joy, Calcutta is, in every sense, the artistic, cultural and intellectual capital of the country. The streets of Calcutta are lively, frantic, chaotic yet full of life and creativity. Guided by the indomitable spirit of the self-built middle class. The city has created a beautiful juxtaposition of the old charm of the colonial era with the rising hipster culture that thrives among the millennial residents of the city.

Starting from the admiration of the thriving artistic scene in the city to the gratifying gastronomic explorations to wandering through the countless bazaars to sit on the banks of the Hooghly and enjoy a peaceful sunset, Calcutta is soaked with layers and layers of heritage and culture and peeling off every layer to look under the hood is a very rewarding experience, once in a lifetime.
