About Varanasi - Uttar Pradesh
Varanasi, or Benaras, (also known as Kashi) is one of the oldest living cities in the world. Varanasi is situated on the banks of the Ganges in Uttar Pradesh State at a distance of 320 kilometres southeast of state capital Lucknow.
According to the ‘Vamana Purana’, the Varuna and the Assi rivers originated from the body of the primordial Person at the beginning of time itself. The tract of land lying between them is believed to be ‘Varanasi’, the holiest of all pilgrimages. The word ‘Kashi’ originated from the word ‘Kas’ which means to shine. Steeped in tradition and mythological legacy, Kashi is the ‘original ground ‘ created by Shiva and Parvati, upon which they stood at the beginning of time.
