VIDEO: Trying Minty Sweet Paan + Temple Hopping in Varanasi, India

During my trip to India, I made it my mission to experience Varanasi to the fullest! Varanasi is India’s holiest city, it is also known as the city of temples and they are famous for their minty sweet paan!

As soon as I arrived in Varanasi my Airbnb host Himanshu took me to his place to drop off the bags and then we hopped on his scooter and started exploring Varanasi.

Our first stop was New Vishawatha Temple which is dedicated to Lord Shiva who is the all mighty god in the Hindu religion. It has the highest temple tower in the world. Our next stop is Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple, unfortunately we could not film inside.

We made a quick stop at Keshave Paan shop, Varanasi’s most famous Paan shop. Paan is basically a leaf that is filmed with mints, then wrapped in silver. This one is just to refresh your pallet after eating. You eat it, chew it and spit it out!

We then headed to one of the most important temples in Varanasi, Durga Mandir Temple. Lord Durga is famous for being the god that destroys evil!

Our last stop of the day was the Ganges river. We hopped on a boat at the Assi Ghat which is at the beginning of the 84 ghats that make up India’s holiest city. We took at 3 and half hour boat ride along all the ghats and ended at the Ganges Aarti ceremony.

I hope you enjoyed all these beautiful places to visit in Varanasi! The Paan, temples and Ganges river were incredible! If you like this video please give this a thumbs up, leave a comment below and subscribe to my channel!
