05:00 AM pick-up from your hotel lobby and drive to the river Ganges. Embark on a private hand-rowing boat for an enchanting journey that transcends time and space with a Sunrise Boat Ride in Varanasi. The boat ride at sunrise, from Dashashwamedh Ghat to Manikarnika Ghat, is the most resplendent ride that takes you across the heritage of Varanasi.

After this, step down at Manikarnika Ghat and enjoy a short walk-through Food Street (Kachori Gali), the flower market, and the perfume market etc.

After this, return to the hotel for breakfast. If you don't want to return to the hotel for breakfast, our guide will suggest some amazing eateries that are famous for their mouth-watering breakfast items.

Later in the day, around 10 AM, drive to Sarnath, a sacred pilgrimage site where Lord Buddha delivered his first sermon. Echoes of enlightenment permeate the ancient stupas, serene gardens, and the Dhamek Stupa. 
You will see the ruins of Sarnath, Buddha Temple, large Buddha statue, archaeological museum, and deer park.

After this, visit the Mother India Temple in Varanasi. This sanctuary of national devotion exudes a serene aura, revering the nation as a mother and symbolizing unity.

Later, drive to the riverbank and walk to a private balcony. Sit on a pre-reserved chair with the best view of the evening aarti ceremony. This seat will be away from the crowd yet offer the best view of the aarti.

As the sun dips below the horizon in Varanasi, the Ghats of the Ganges come alive with the Evening Aarti Ceremony. Flames dance in the hands of devout priests, hymns fill the air, and incense weaves mysticism. A mesmerizing spectacle unfolds, where ancient rituals bridge the earthly and the divine, captivating hearts.
