Sham e Banaras – Varanasi by Night

Sham e Banaras, a Night to Remember in Varanasi

“The river that flows in you also flows in me.”

– Kabirdas

How does it feel to be draped in darkness and be enthralled by the glimmer of light in a distance… to reflect amidst soothing waters and tranquilising music with fables of a world that once was..?

How does it feel to savour a meal made for the Gods under a star lit sky , to have serenity speak to you, to be lost in time until eternity ?

Immerse with us on an evening of a true Banarasi experience on top a Bajda (Large boat) in the midstream of Ganga, the holiest river in the Indian Sub-continent, to take on a cruise that transcends the realm of actual and the absolute.
