Overview 

Varanasi commonly known as Banaras, is a popular holy place for the Hindus, Buddhists and Jains. People often refer to Varanasi as the city of temples, and the cultural capital of India. It is believed that the city was founded by the Hindu deity, Shiva, around 5,000 years ago, which is why this place is an important place of pilgrimage today.

Varanasi has several small cottage industries, like the Silk Sarees, hand-woven carpets, and handicrafts.

Banaras is also popular because of its three major universities, the Banaras Hindu University, Mahatma Gandhi Kashi Vidyapeeth University and Sampurnanand Sanskrit University.
