Know the South Of Varanasi Heritage Walk Tour Packages

Varanasi, the oldest city in India which is a city of ancient temples, handicraft, monasteries, narrow lanes, ghats, and not to forget river Ganga! The city is so big that it is quite impossible to know it well in just one day trip to Kashi. The city has two sides- South Varanasi and North Varanasi. South Varanasi Heritage Walk Tours allows the tourist to explore ancient temples, old ghats, handicrafts area, and lanes where you can witness the lives of weavers. These heritage walk tours allow visitors to explore Kashi in a new way and see the Banarasi way of life. Let’s take a look on South Varanasi Heritage Walk

Assi Ghat

Assi Ghat is the famous spot in South Varanasi.
