About Varanasi Tourism

Varanasi is among the oldest living cities in the world and its antiquity finds place in ancient scriptures. Located along the Ganga it is a sacred place for all Hindus, Jains and Buddhists.

Regarding the creation of Kashi, it is mentioned in the Shiv Purana that the Advaita Parameshwara, who was engrossed in his non-duality, had a desire to become another form. He appeared in two forms due to the distinction of man and woman. Prakriti and Purusha were also created by them. Nirguna Supreme God gave a voice to them, ‘both of you should do penance, that would be a perfect creation’.

When asked by nature and man that when there is no place for penance, then where should we do penance with your permission. Then Nirguna Shiva created an auspicious and beautiful city with the result of Panchkrosh, the essence of all the energies, located in space, coordinated with all the materials and sent it near to Purusha. This Panchkroshi Shiv Nagari has been called Kashi.
