A Sanskrit word for balcony, this charming sit out overlooking the swimming and is an ideal place to order from our Tea Menu, browse through a book and just let the world go by while you unwind at our resort in Varanasi.
This ‘watering hole’ of the Resort takes inspiration from a symbol that represents aspects of the divine. The ceiling is hand-painted 18th century Sri Yantra with devotees in meditation moving through chakras and points of spiritual power. Yantra serves as a lounge, bar and library – located between the Shiva Courtyard and the swimming pool.
Banaras is known for its huge steps going down to the River Ganga called the ghats. We have our own smaller version at the Resort, which is also blessed with water from the River Ganga. Participate in the morning and evening prayer ceremonies; pray at our Temple dedicated to Goddess Vindya Vasni ; or then light the floating lamp in the evening.
