City Tales

Varanasi is the city of Lord Shiva, and the place where He and the Goddess Parvati founded the universe. It is believed to be the site where Lord Rama did penance, after his victory over the demon-king Ravana, and may also have been a battlefield in the Mahabharata, where the God Krishna set fire to an imposter Krishna.
