Varanasi, Bodh Gaya and Nalanda

Varanasi - One of the holiest cities of Northern India, Varanasi is built on the banks of the Ganges. The city had been a seat of learned saints and ancient Hinduistic practices for thousands of years. Little remains of this ancient glory in a city that is permeated as much with the buzz of small town commercialism as with exalted spiritualism. A maze of temples, alleys, teeming river ghats and craft shops (zari sarees, mithais (Indian sweets) and trinkets) Varanasi is a straight dive into the heady culture of traditional Northern India. Students will visit some local temples, take a boat ride on the ghats and watch evening “aarti” (hymns chanted for worship) on the riverside.

Bodh Gaya - From Varanasi students will take a day's trip to Bodhgaya, one of the most important Buddhist pilgrimages in India. It was here that the Buddha attained spiritual knowledge to attain the title of the “Enlightened One”. Students will also visit the nearby Buddhist site of Sarnath which is holy to Buddhists from all around the world as the site where the Buddha imparted his first sermon.

Nalanda - Taking a step forward into ancient sites of spiritual glory, students will visit the amazing archaeological site of Nalanda. Founded in the 5th Century AD Nalanda was a famous seat of learning in ancient India. The complex was built with red bricks and its ruins occupy an area of 35 acres. At its peak, the university attracted scholars and students from as far away as China, Tibet, Greece and Persia. It was destroyed later by Turkish raiders in 1200 AD.
