Subah-e-Banaras is a collective effort by the society and its welfare patrons to showcase and blend nature with pluralistic human existence. It is an everyday phenomenon on the southern ghat when the place is full of light, life and spiritual essence perpetuating the eternal beauty of nature along with vedic chanting, music and yoga. The morning sun illuminates the ghats and golden ganga inspires men to meditate, enjoy life and music and cleanse. The calm of the morning is quite opposite to the hustle and bustle of the evening. The place truly transforms within a matter of hours and presents a unique perspective on the way we see things. This has truly turned into a phenomenon as this happens every day.
The tour allows you to spend some time with the community and feel transformed. You can choose to meditate or do yoga or simply watch. Join this 4-5 hours boat-ride tour and experience how life starts with devotion, spirituality and sacredness in Banaras. Assembling at the Assi Ghat at 5:15 AM during the summers and 6:00 AM during the winters, embark on a boat ride in the holy Ganges.
