Suryauday Haveli, Varanasi

Suryauday Haveli on Shivala Ghats is a reflection of the spirit of the holy city of Benaras. The Haveli traces its history back to the early 20th century. It was built by the Royal Family of Nepal as a retreat for the aged. Its now been painstakingly put together again to provide the best ghat experience in Benaras. Your stay begins with a 15 minute boat ride upstream along the famous ghats of Benaras to reach the Haveli. The Haveli is also connected by small alleys and streets leading to the Famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple (15 minutes walk).
We believe being in Benaras is a high adrenalin activity! Start your day with Yoga on the Roof Terrace under the supervision of our trained instructors. Sit back on the roof deck and soak in the spirit and legacy of the Ghats! Take a walk through the old city of Benaras with all its noises, smells, colors and masses of people! Our river guides and boats are always at your disposal whenever you wish to step down to the ghats and go out on a photo tour. For those who wish to explore further, the traditional hand woven silk looms, Sarnath (Buddhist town) and Bodgaya are just a days excursion.
It is the Ganga Ghats of Varanasi that complement the concept of divinity. Ghats of Ganga are perhaps the holiest spots of Varanasi. The Ganga Ghats at Varanasi are full of pilgrims, who flock to the place to take a dip in the holy Ganges, which is believed to absolve one from all sins. The ghats are a vast area of space for the religious and cultural life of the city, serving also as the “lungs” of the thick population of the city which they fringed. These were gradually stone-paved and steps leading to the river were built; this trend mainly started in the second half of the 16th century
