  An Alley in Godaulia, Varanasi
by Canadienne

Be prepared to get lost. Certifiably, completely and totally lost. The ancient backstreets and alleys of Varanasi?s old city, known as Godaulia, make no sense to anyone accustomed to urban planning. They twist, turn, dead-end, open into courtyards, run into temples. . .and reveal points of interest when you least expect it.

Don't plan to find anything in particular, just go for a walk. When you finally tire of the experience, then turn to someone for directions. Otherwise, walk and take in the people, the shops, the life, and the magic of this most magical of cities.
