About The Package
It goes without saying, but India is an unfathomably diverse country. There are so many cultures, traditions, schools of thought and languages that all share these lands with each other despite the differences. All of these religions have learned to coexist with each other over the course of living side by side for centuries.
Travelling to Uttar Pradesh, there are a couple of townships that holds importance in so many of our cultures, and you can explore them yourself with our Kashi Vishwanath tour package. In the village of Kashi and the monuments of Sarnath, which are located fairly close to one another, the monuments, the people, the rituals that are performed here are all presented in a fascinating confluence of different faiths, all accompanying each other in an incredible showing of tolerance and compassion. It is also known as Benaras to some and Varanasi to others. The one thing that is common and clear across regardless of how someone may refer to it, is the fact that it is truly a place of great reverence among many faiths. All in all, if you are interested in becoming a part of this incredible dance of life, colour and culture for a few days, TravelTriangle’s Kashi Vishwanath temple tour package is meant for you. Here’s a glimpse at some of the place you may get to visit on our itinerary.
In the Pali Canon, a collection of scriptures that forms the belief system and history of the Theravada Buddhist tradition, this village for referred to as “Isipatana”, meaning “a place where holy men landed”. The name Sarnath, however, comes from the Sanskrit language, where the word “Saranganatha” has the meaning of “Lord of the Deer”. This may be due to the tale of one of Gautam Buddha’s previous lives as a Bodhisattva (a person who delays their ascent into enlightenment due to their display of compassion for beings who are still suffering) who was leading deer through a forest. There was a king who lived nearby who wished to hunt his deer, so this Bodhisattva struck a deal with him - that he would only hunt these animals one by one, per the Bodhisattva’s instructions. The king agreed, but then one day, the time came for the king to kill a doe who was to give birth to a fawn. To save this doe’s life he offered his own life to the king. The king, rocked to his core by this act of sacrifice, decide to create a sanctuary for deer in that forest instead. This sanctuary is said to be Sarnath’s famous Deer Park, where deer still live and thrive to this day.
- Witness the cultural mixture of Sarnath

Other Benefits (On Arrival)
Starting with the stupas of Sarnath
This tour commences with your arrival in the village of Varanasi. After you check into your hotel, drop off your luggage and stretch your legs for a bit to shake off that travel fatigue, we’re off to our first stop on the tour. That stop is the holy lands of Sarnath. One of the most important sites anywhere in India for the people who follow both the Buddhist philosophies as well as Jain philosophies, this place has a number of monuments scattered throughout its expanse that tell the story of why this place has the reverence that it does in these cultures.
The first of these places is the famed Deer Park of Sarnath. Next up on the tour of Sarnath are its magnificent stupas. Stupas, in Buddhist culture, were originally meant to function as tombs, not too dissimilar to how pyramids function in Egyptian culture. Another stupa here that is worthy of note is the Chaukhandi Stupa. Whereas the Dhamek Stupa enshrines the spot where Gautam Buddha taught his disciples for the first time, the Chaukhandi Stupa marks the place where they first met, as Gautam Buddha returned from Bodh Gaya after achieving enlightenment.
Following this, we travel to Sarnath’s main chowk, where a monument named Mulagandha Kuti Vihar is located. After our tour of Sarnath is completed, we make our way back to Varanasi at around 5 pm, just in time to witness the wonderfully choreographed ritual of the Ganga Aarti, performed here at Dasaswamedh Ghat during every sunset. After this tiring yet fulfilling jaunt around these sacred towns, we return to the hotel for dinner and an overnight stay.
Other Benefits (On Arrival)
The splendour of Shiva’s sacred shrine
This day is dedicated entirely towards the exploration and study of the iconic Kashi Vishwanath Temple here in Varanasi. It is one of, if not the most revered temple to Lord Shiva anywhere in the world. On the outside, the temple is absolutely gorgeous, an utter architectural marvel, adorned with gold domes, with a spire shooting up through them. Once you have had the opportunity to explore the temple to your heart’s content, you may return to the hotel and retire to your room for an overnight stay.
Other Benefits (On Arrival)
Bid bye Varanasi
The final day of the tour wraps up after we have breakfast. Once the check-out process is complete, we head out from the hotel and begin our departure from Varanasi, with the blessings of these venerated grounds in our hearts and minds.
