The world is going through unprecedented times and it has become imperative to keep the travel industry as well as individual minds engaged for revival.
With the aim to celebrate India’s diverse touristic and cultural landscape, the tourism ministry has taken the initiative of organising a series of webinars under the overall theme of ‘Dekho Apna Desh’.
This platform is connecting a large number of tourism enthusiasts to hear and watch experts talking about their region, city, tradition, culture, heritage, and history.
In this series, the ministry presented its 7th webinar called Photowalking Varanasi: A Visual Treat on Thursday.
The webinar was presented by the team of City Explorers Private Limited, a parent organisation under which a special city brand ‘Varanasi Heritage Walks’ introduced Varanasi’s diversity, mysticism, spirituality, cultural literacy, life experiences, and personal memories.
The panellists of the session were Sachin Bansal- Chief Explorer (Founder, City Explorers Pvt Ltd), Shrawan Chinchwadkar (Culture Insider, Varanasi) and Shashank Sharma (Guide).
The webinar showcased Varanasi as one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, with cultural anecdotes, mouth-watering delicacies & living traditions hidden at every corner along with one of the finest river frontages in India.
Miles of ghats, countless shrines, millions of gods and goddesses, this city has an answer to everyone’s prayers.
The webinar touched upon the shifting hues of Varanasi’s ancient history, cultural heritage, its spiritual connection, delicious cuisines through each pit stop.
The webinar received very good feedback from participants which included participants from overseas as well.
