Varanasi : Khajuraho : Taj
VARANASi - It is
believed that those who die in Varanasi will be released from the cycle
of rebirth. Pious Hindus still come to Varanasi the oldest city in India
to spend their last days, living in spartan communes run by a multitude
of religious trusts. The focus is the sacred River Ganga (Ganges) where
people come to wash away their sins by bathing, the dead are cremated
and holy men meditate. In the narrow by lanes are crowded bazaars
selling brassware and silk brocades. After attaining enlightenment at
Bodhgaya the Buddha went to SARNATH - one of the most holy sites; and it
was here that he preached his first discourse in the deer park to set in
motion the 'Wheel of the Dharma'. In the temple architecture of India,
the KHAJURAHO (also famous as erotica's of Khajuraho) complex remains
unique. magnificent richly carved temples, came up near the village of
Khajuraho from 950 AD - 1050 AD- an inspired burst of creativity and are
a collective paean to life, to joy and to creativity; to the ultimate
fusion of man with his creator; the temples represent the expression of
a highly matured civilization.
