    Was unaware of the seats of spicejet airlines, I was offered the 1A seat with food with an addtional cost of 500, the seat was so uncomfortable to sit. I will never again get the window seats for SpiceJet. Unfortunately the flight was even delayed at Delhi Airport.

  • Thai Temple

    The Thai Temple is one of the recognized attractions near Sarnath and is built in the Thai architectural style. It is bounded by ........

  • Bharat Mata Temple

    A temple without any idol? Surprising, but true! The Bharat Mata Temple is a unique amalgamation of patriotism and spiritualism. Located in Varanasi, the temple is a grand display of Mother India but not in the form of any deity or Goddess but as a marble-carved relief map that amazingly pin-points the geographical beauty of undivided India. The temple was built by Babu Shiv Prasad Gupt and Durga Prasad Khatri and was inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi in 1936.

  • Dhamek Stupa

    Buddhism in India holds a firm ground and to show respect and devotion to Buddhist preachings and teachings, pilgrims from far and wide flock to India. The pious land of Sarnath is one of the most prominent Buddhist site where the noticable Dhamek Stupa stands as a stern reflection of the religion. The 34 m in height and 28.3 m in diameter stupa was constructed by Mauryan king, Ashoka. The intricately carved geometrical shapes and figures of humans and birds on the borders of the stupa symbolize the great architectural skills of Ashoka.
