The climate of Varanasi (India)
Varanasi, also known as Benares, lies on the banks of the river Ganges in the Indian federal state of Uttar Pradesh. For buddhists this is an important holy City and for Hindus this is the holiest place in the world. For thousands of years many pilgrims have come here to visit the many religious festivals. Hence everything in town hinges on the river and its holy significance. Hindus believe that bathing in the river takes away all their sins, some come here to cremate their dead, whereas others come to this place to die. All these religious expressions being accessible for all to see make Varanasi a very special spot.
Varanasi has a warm China climate. This very specific climate often occurs in somewhat more elevated areas. The summers there are very warm and wet and on the other hand the wintermonths are reasonably dry. It does get colder but temperatures far below freezing-point seldom occur. Consequently snowfall is rare here.
