Top Rated Attractions in Varanasi

Search Radius (Miles)
Jantar Mantar

Perched on the terrace of the magnificent Man Mahal Palace, Jantar Mantar is Varanasi's prime observatory, designed to the likes of the ones found in New Delhi and Jaipur. Constructed by Maharaja Jai Singh in they year 1737, the science museum showcases various milestones of India achieved in the field of astrology and science. Apart from serving its main purpose of helping determine stars and planet positions, it also helps to measure altitude, local standard time and the sun position.

Archaeological Museum Sarnath

Established in 1910, the museum building itself partly follows the construction plan of a monastery. The wide collection inside dates back from 3rd Century BCE to 12th Century CE. Lion Capital of Ashoka, which is exhibited at the center of the main hall 'Shakyasimha gallery', is the celebrated attraction of Archeological Museum Sarnath. Also on display is a large number of Buddha statues in various postures. Many historic landmarks detailing the evolution of Buddha philosophy can be observed at this authoritative collection which is a treasure-trove for researchers and scholars.

JHV Cinemas

Located in the JHV Mall, this modern movie hall is a contrasting addition to the ancient city and its historic appeal. With its charming appearance, top notch features and classy amenities, JHV Cinemas attracts a relatively smaller crowd of style-conscious movie-lovers of Varanasi. The extremely good acoustic features prove to be an asset to this cinema. Screening new releases from Hollywood and Bollywood, watching a show here will be a pleasant experience.

Subah-E-Banaras Boat Tour

Literally translated as the morning of Banaras, the Subah-e-Banaras Boat Tour arranged by Groovy Tours and Travels is a must-do activity if you happen to be in the holy city. The boat ride starts from the serene Assi Ghat and ferries tourists to Manikarnika Ghat (city's largest cremation site). The early-morning boat trip is an ideal way to see sadhus and locals visiting the riverside to perform everyday rituals including praying to the Sun and the holy dip in the Ganges. The boat tour culminates with a short walk covering the old city's vibrant southern precinct.

IP Cinema

IP Cinema is a movie theatre located in the Sigra area of Varanasi. It caters to Bollywood Hindi films and releases new films on Fridays. The place is generally crowded on the weekends so advance booking is recommended. This movie theatre is located inside IP Sigra Mall so if you have time, you can indulge yourself in shopping before or after the movie. It is a nice place to spend some time with your loved ones.
