Varanasi is one of the oldest inhabited cities on earth. The American author Mark Twain famously said this about the city (also known as Benaras): “Benaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice as old as all of them put together!” Indeed there are few things that come close to the Varanasi experience. The city that seems older than time itself has been immortalized not just in literature but also in movies.
The city has been continuously focused among the Film Directors because of rich culture, tradition and way of life and its openness towards the Death. There are several films shot in Varanasi part as part but the below 5 films are the best succeeded to showcase best definition of Varanasi what is.
