Location of Varanasi

Varanasi is a city on the banks of the Ganges in Uttar Pradesh, 320 kilometres southeast of the state capital, Lucknow. By road, Varanasi is located 797 kilometres southeast of New Delhi, 320 kilometres southeast of Lucknow and 121 kilometres east of Allahabad. Being located in the Indo-Gangetic Plains of North India, the land is very fertile because low level floods in the Ganges continually replenish the soil. Varanasi is located in the middle Ganges valley of North India, in the Eastern part of the state of Uttar Pradesh, along the left crescent-shaped bank of the Ganges, averaging between 15 mtrs and 21 mtrs above the river.
