Destination of the week : Gyanvapi Mosque Varanasi


Gyanvapi Mosque Varanasi

Description : My trip to various places in the north gave me a wonderful opportunity to explore the Gyanvapi Mosque, Varanasi. Also known as Alamgiri Mosque, it is one of the most famous heritage sites in my homeland Uttar Pradesh. The Gyanvapi Mosque is constructed by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb and it is located near Lalita Ghats along the banks of Ganges.
