Due to floods the ghats were closed so sarnath tour was arranged. It was a wonderful experience. Evening Aarti was wonderful. The authentic bhati choka was wonderful. The tour guide Bhawna Mohinani's efforts were really commendable. Her knowledge about city and religion was wonderful. On the whole it was a wonderful experience.
