A TAPESTRY OF EXPERIENCES
Get ready for a rush of sensory experiences from the time you land in the city till the time you leave. Though experiencing Varanasi in its entirety calls for more time than most travellers can fit into their itineraries, certain facets of the city ought to be sampled. Visitors must take a boat ride, at sunset or sunrise, which will take them past the various Ghats, allowing them fascinating vistas of believers performing sacred rites and ceremonies. The intrepid traveller may be tempted to head for the Flower Market, Fabric Market or the Ayurvedic Herb Market for a locally enchanting Bazaar experience. Finally, no trip can be complete without trying some of the city’s local gustatory offerings which include, among others, Chaat and Varanasi Paan.

The Brij Universe
A mélange of extraordinary services and experiences await every guest who comes to the Brijrama Palace. The indescribably special Brijrama experience begins at Bhisasur Ghaat where you are traditionally greeted and escorted to the Bajra (a traditional Indian wooden boat). The languid boat ride to Darbanga Ghat takes you past Varanasi’s famed Ghats, giving you your first glimpse of the city’s fascinating heritage and history. Connoisseurs of art will not cease to be enchanted by the hotel’s non-pareil ambience and décor which is enhanced through 18th-century artworks and antiques. Other pleasures will continue to punctuate your stay here. The history of the Palace itself, its regal architecture; vistas of the serene Ganges, the rousing, musical mornings and evenings, and unforgettable gustatory treats collectively make for an indubitably decadent experience.
According to mythology, when Goddess Durga annihilated the demon Shumbha- Nishumbha, her sword struck the ground, resulting in the creation of a stream, now known as the river Assi. The ghat is the confluence of the River Ganga and Assi, and is thus named the Assi Ghat. Devout Hindus also believe that it was at Assi Ghat that Tulsidas, the author of Ramcharitmanas, left for his heavenly abode..
The Assi ghat has now become the venue of a unique pre-dawn programme known as Subah-e-Benaras which includes cultural and spiritual activities such as Ganga Aarti, Yoga, and Vedic chanting.
At Brijrama Palace, we make sure that you have an out-of-the-world experience. After years of renovation, the beautifully restored Brijrama Palace is known for its unique views of the ghats and cities. We have been in Varanasi for the last couple of hundred years, which is why no one can let you explore Varanasi the way we do. Starting from the food to handicraft, we will help you explore Varanasi in a unique way. Here is a list of places that you can explore when you stay in Brijrama Palace.
