Best budget/value for money accomodation

by Ang2011

Hi,will be travelling to Varanasi next week.searching for hotels on the net and going thru the reviews-anyone been to GanpatiGuesthouse? Any advice on the rooms type-is there any difference for eg between 1200 and 800 INR rooms? and which hotel is better Alka,Ganpati guesthouse or Haifa?Is Haifa within walking distance to the main ghats?

Last year this time,we stayed in Shanti Guest House, very close to the main burning Ghat Manikarnika. It is nice clean place close to the Ghats, and very cheap. we paid RS 200 per night for double room with western WC,and breakfast was Rs60. You pay extra for AC, but we did not needed as the fan was enough..
They do free pick up from the bus/train station, which was very unimportant for us. Also they have breathtaking rooftop terrace, with internet caffee and travel agency.
You can walk to the Ghats from there and also they offer free down boat ride on the Ganges. It starts 5am.
You can send them e-mail at varanasishanti@yahoo.com or you can call from within India on (0)5422392568.
When you are in town, you have to tray local food, and best place is Madhur Milan cafe, on Dasaswamedh Ghat Rd. when you walk from the Dasaswamedh Ghat up the road, which curves on the left, the cafe is right on the curve. You can not miss it. Chappati & rice plate with dahl and curry only Rs25 also they have best Dosa Masala in town... It was our favourite place to eat...
Happy travels

We stayed at Hotel Alka, which is in a great position, walk down
the stairs to Meer Ghat. We had a fantastic (deluxe) room for
1,600 Rs with AC (which we needed in May) and private balcony
overlooking the Ganges, just wonderful early mornings...

Travel Tips for Varanasi

Amazing Varanasi

by TracyLB

My favorite thing about Varanasi, is that there is just not another place like it!! One minute u love it, and the next thing u hate it!!! It is so spiritual, and there are so many unusual things happening everywhere that u actually feel like u had the most amazing experience and the memories will never fade!! I just loved sitting on the Ghats and watching the boats and the people....and in the evening, gazing at the Ganges from our river view room and it is all lit up from people putting candles in the water...

And wondering down the narrow streets, and watching the children play and dodging the cows that are hoarding the streets!

Taking the rickshaw through the chaotic streets and just sitting back and taking it all in...

The sounds, the smells, the sites are like nothing i have ever seen!!

Boat repair

by Willettsworld

Saw these guys repairing this boat using just hand tools. Reminded me seeing similar repairs being carried out using hand tools on Dhow boats in Dubai. The photo also shows how bad the pollution is in the Ganges as the edge of the water is green!

Semi aerial view

Took this picture on the rooftop of my hotel. This is a good point to shoot good Varanasi photos if you have good strong lenses, but I don't. Houses here almost all built flat top with cement. They don't build Greco-Roman rooftop, very Varanasi perhaps.

Dhobi Wallahs - The Laundry Caste

by Hmmmm

Have you ever heard of a “dhobi-wallah?” Dhobis are the human washing machines of India. They get up early every morning and head for the dhobi-ghat where they spend the rest of the day stomping around in vats of sudsy water and dirty clothes, laundering everything clean with their feet in a very very dirty Ganges river.

Where do the clothes come from?
Other dhobis do the pick-up and delivery. They begin at dawn, heading in all directions on bicycles to collect or deliver their customers’ laundry in big bags tied to the back fender. This is how is it is and how it’s been done for centuries (maybe not with bicycles, though). They bring the clothes in and after cruelly stomping on them they punish the clothes by scrubbing them with stiff brushes. Next, they flog them against cement walls… just to make sure they’re really clean. After that, they use heavy irons loaded with live coals to press out any stubborn wrinkles.

Why should we care about the dhobi-wallahs? Because they’re becoming extinct. They are being forced out of business by a tough competitor — the washing machine. You and I got one years ago, but the average Indian didn’t. They couldn’t afford one. It was cheaper to hire a dhobi. But today, Indians are buying washing machines by the thousands and the cleaner is losing his job.

Dhobi Wallahs at Lali Ghat

by Willettsworld

A Dhobi Wallah basically means a laundryman or washerman and wherever you find water in India, they'll be people washing clothes in it (however dirty the water looks). What is interesting is that next to Lali Ghat is a ghat where cremations are carried out. To reduce water pollution, and to keep pace with the number of corpses needed to be cremated in Varanasi, the government of Uttar Pradesh has constructed an electric crematorium here. The ghat was built in 1778 by the Raja of Banaras.
