Varanasi (also known as Benares, Banaras, Kashi and Kasi) is a Hindu holy city on the banks of the river Ganges in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

Varanasi is the site of the holy shrine of Lord Kasi Viswanatha (a form of Lord Shiva). This, combined with its location on the banks of the sacred Ganges River, has made Varanasi the most sacred place for all Hindus, irrespective of denomination. Hindus have long believed that bathing in the Ganges or dying in the holy city of Varanasi circumvents reincarnation and hence provides a permanent place in Heaven.
