If one wants to feel the soul of Varanasi and the River Ganga, a boat trip is essential and a beautiful life experience. Varanasi is built on the western curve of the holy River Ganga. The name Varanasi is derived from the names of two rivers, Varana and Asi, which meet the Ganga on the northern boundary. Being rowed by boat up or down the river, one can see the ghats dotted with temples. Sunrise in Varanasi is famous and to enjoy this fully, one should visit the riverfront at sunrise time. During this time people come to bathe and to pray. These rituals remind us of the importance of worship so prevalent in India.
