Transportation

by orchid49

From Varansi to Khajuraho, any good transportation : train, bus, airplane?
From Khajuraho to Bangkok, do I have to go back to Varanasi to take flight ?

Re: Transportation

by Donna_in_India

Hi - both Jet Airways and Indian Airlines fly from Varanasi to Khajuraho. Not sure about the Bangkok flight but think you'd have to go out of Delhi. Happy Travels!

Re: Transportation

Ofcourse, good transportation from Varanasi to Khajuraho is by flight.
There is mo direct flights to my knowledge form Varanasi to Bangkok.You need to fly from Khajuraho to either Delhi or Kolkota to catch a flight to Bangkok.

Re: Transportation

by Chintoo

Flight is recommended for Khajuraho to Varanasi sector as the road journey is too long approx 15 hours and even the road condition is also not good... and no places or motels for the refreshments on the way...

Bangkok flight can be taken from Delhi... not sure if its possible from Varanasi or Khajuraho....

Thx

Travel Tips for Varanasi

Ganges River

by nepalgoods

To have a bath in the Ganges River means for the Hindus, that they clean themself from all their sins. Specially in Varanasi a bath in the Ganges means, that your rebirth will be in a healthy and wealthy surrounding. So every Maharaja was eager to have his own palace built along the river.

Sadhu

by l_joo

Sadhu is some kind of religious peoples who want to practice their religious lifestyle in such a way to challenge their ownselves for some attainments for better next life, this is my explaination and what I knew so far. I haven't yet practice such way of lifestyle, nothing to tell you but only watch from a distance and read some from others.

Bhang shops

by illumina

I should probably make it clear at the beginning that according to the law in India, it is illegal to grow, consume or traffic cannibis.

However. This law is rarely enforced, at least for locals, and the use of it is common throughout India, particularly at Holi. There are even government licensed bhang shops in some regions.

There is a bhang shop just back from Manikarnika Ghat (the main burning ghat) - it says government licensed, but it's hard to be sure about it. A ball of bhang (a dark green, moist and sticky preparation of cannabis leaves and buds) about the size of a golf ball, that would probably be enough for about 8-10 people, costs the princely sum of 6 rupees. Yes. SIX. Now I know why the saddhus are always high!

A warning though - if you are planning to indulge, it would probably be advisable to do so in the relative safety of your hotel room. The ghats and backstreets are hard enough to navigate even without the effects of bhang, especially at night.

Laundry

by Vija_v

It is really amazing how many different things you can do in one river. Ganga are used for people cremation, as a place for laundry, as bathroom, as a place for meditation and even as the place where let into all town's sewerage.

But also it is interesting, that even everything happens in one place, nth bad happens with locals. I mean in Western countries everyone would be afraid from different diseases, but in India noone is worried about that. I have heard that in Ganga water there is very high percentage of silver, so that is good way for disinfection and nth bad can happen. :)

maybe next time i have to have some morning swim in there?! :))

Ganesh: The Virtual son of Shiva and Parvati

by Hmmmm

hen I first arrived in India I was talking with an Israeli man who looked like a cross between Mahatma Gandhi and Joe Blow Sadhu. He Obviously loved India, I could tell be his enthusiasm for it, and took pride in appearing more Indian than most Indians. He asked me who my favourite Indian deity was. I replied instantly, Ganesh. He asked me why? I replied because he is in charge of good luck. Over time my choice change of course, but I still hold Ganesh right up there as one of my two favourites. The Israeli like Hanuman, because he was powerful.

So who is Ganesh?

Ganesh is the Hindu elephant-headed god, Ganesha (or Ganesh) is known (by various names in different parts of India and on different occasions) as the Remover of Obstacles, the god of domestic harmony and of success. He is the most beloved and revered of all the Hindu gods, and is always invoked first in any Hindu ceremony or festival. He is the son of Parvati (the wife of Shiva, the Destroyer, the most powerful of the Hindu trinity of principal gods). There are many stories about how Ganesha got his elephant head, and about his exploits and antics. He was created as an ordinary boy, but was decapitated in battle. Shiva's emissaries were sent into the forest and told to get the head of the first animal they found and to fit that head onto the boy's neck. They found a little elephant, and it worked!
