Canvas - The Sacred City of Varanasi - A major religious hub in India
Varanasi has and estimated 23,000 temples!
A major religious hub in India, it is the holiest of the seven sacred cities (Sapta Puri) in Hinduism and Jainism, and played an important role in the development of Buddhism and Ravidassia.
Buddha is believed to have founded Buddhism here around 528 BCE when he gave his first sermon:
"The Setting in Motion of the Wheel of Dharma", at nearby Sarnath, now a holy pilgrimage location.
Varanasi grew as an important industrial centre, famous for its muslin and silk fabrics, perfumes, ivory works, and sculpture.
Varanasi, also called Benares, is a city on the banks of the river Ganga in Uttar Pradesh, India, 320 kilometres (200 mi) south-east of the state capital, Lucknow, and 121 kilometres (75 mi) east of Allahabad.
