Ritual Tour Package

Ritual Tour Package

Kashi is one of the oldest and the holiest city in India. Most devout Indians have a dream of making the pilgrimage to Kashi, known as the Kashi Yatra, at least once in their lifetime. Early morning, people start gathering at the various ghats to perform these rituals – some of them meant to appease the various deities while others to provide peace and happiness to the souls of their deceased ancestors. These ritualistic activities revolve around the holy river, The Ganga, and start soon after sunrise and continue throughout the day.
