    Room with a holy view.

    I highly recommend The Ganga Monestary. It is a nice easy walk along the Ganges to Assi Gaht, the southernmost of the Varanasi gahts.it is very quiet. My room had a beautiful view of the Ganges. There is a nice rooftop patio as well.

    Disfrute sin Aglomeraciones

    Ubicado próximo al ghat Asi, en el extremo por lo que las actividades propias de los ghat, se realizan sin tanta aglomeración y sin la continua interrupción de varqueros y vendedores de todo.
