Varanasi is a place of pilgrimage and there is no special time for the devotees to have an encounter with their God. In this respect, there is no specific time that can be designated as the best time to visit Varanasi. However, if you would like to experience this place in its best climate, it is suggested that you visit the place in winter. This is the time when the sun is mild and the voters are a bit cold and pleasant. This will ensure that your encounter with temples does not frustrate you even in the smallest bit because you are not only enjoying the feeling of being with God but also the goodness of the climate in there.
Varanasi is greatly influenced by its Hindu connection and the cuisine is predominantly Uttar Pradesh food. While most of Uttar Pradesh might have the influences of Mughal and Awadhi cuisines, Varanasi has managed to retain its essence of being predominantly vegetarian. The rustic nature of the food is what makes Varanasi very special. One of the things that you can try in Varanasi is the Aloo Paratha Point while this might sound quite common, the rustic aloo paratha that is made with mustard oil and served with thick curd and Pickle is something that you will relish for its unpolished texture and appeal.
