Ghats are not very far from railway station. You can take a taxi or auto riksha or even a cycle riksha. Cycle riksha may charge INR 15 to 20. Distance is nearly 4 kms.
From ghat you may visit famous Kasi Viswanath Temple. You may have to stand long hours in "Q" to get an entry to temple. From temple you may go to shopping centres on foot.

Yes, take a taxi or rickshaw to the ghats, there are lots of boats offering service there. If you want to do only a one-way trip I recommend to start at Harishandra Ghat (small cremation Ghat), take a boat up to Marnikarnika Ghat (the main cremation Ghat; both are the turning points for many tours). From Marnikarnika Ghat you can continue along the river to less crowded Ghats and then take your turn into the old villages and go back through the alleys. In the area near the Dasaswamedh ghat there are lots of shops selling silk and sarees (and lots of owners to invite you in, so no chance to miss them).
Enjoy your trip!

Travel Tips for Varanasi

Varanasi socket

by l_joo

This is a picture I snapped from my hotel for tourists. The socket is two in one of both three pin round-headed type and two pin round headed type. 230V.

While in Varanasi, the city itself can easily gone blackout for 2,3 4, 5 up to 10 times a day. Asked hotel guys why so, they said Varanasi was so.

At work

by l_joo

In narrow street here, heavy machines are not a good idea, that's why they use man powers for works like this. This is in front of our hotel, I saw them working two days in two peoples carrying tools as shown. Then I saw cows dogs etc walked on it before the cement dry. The third day, I saw some parts already broken and few drops of cow dungs on the new surface.

dry cow dung for fire wood

by tremendopunto

You can see that in Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and also in India. The lack of firewood makes people creative. They collect the cow dung, put it into handy portions (dinner plate size) and let it dry. Nothing else but recycling. Using the rare natural resources carefully!

Varanasi: Erotic Religeous Objects

by Intrepidduck

Like much of India Varanasi has a huge range of religious objects, ikons, statues, figurines etc. Some are subtle and others much like the one pictured. Hindu art is widely known for its sexual imagery - this stemming from a time when sexuality was more liberal within the confines of that religion. Objects small and large can be found where ever you go in India. Its not a hard thing to pic some of them out!

Funeral processions

by illumina

Because Varanasi is considered the best and most holy place in India to come to die, the backstreets behind the ghats are filled with houses for the dying, and during any walk through the galis it is almost impossible to avoid a funeral procession. Corpses, shrouded and covered with bright gold and red tinselled cloth, are borne on bamboo stretchers by chanting men... Ram Nam Satya Hai become familiar words.
