Great report cum sightseeing tip, read each word, never got distracted.
There is an aura of belief and cult in holy ghats of varanasi, a sweet smell of uniqueness and oneness.
Let's hope we meet someday, and attend Aarti at ghats.
For varanasi, the place of serenity.

Hope trip will be good, I will try to a part of convention, but nothing is guaranteed.

If You deboard at #Sarnath
Then take Auto which are available at station exit area, try to get in sharing one as it will take only 10rs to SARNATH Excavation Area where stupa and Museum present...
Don't prefer auto to cantt as they will charge high, better to take local pvt buses or sharing autos...
