The most sacred Ghat is Manikarnika, associated with the Goddess Parvati. In the heart of the city is the majestic Vishveswara Temple, dedicated to Shiva, the Lord of the Universe, who according to legend, after his marriage to Devi Parvati, left his Himalayan abode and came to reside in Kashi with all the gods in attendance.

There were around 85 temples and almost all of them date from one century-long burst of creative genius between 950 to 1050 AD. Each temple has a large number of spires in ascending order representing man's aspirations towards goals. Of the original 85, only 22 have survived the ravages of time; these remain as a collective paean to life, to joy and to creativity; to the ultimate fusion of man with his creator.

Seeng Sagar (Deogarh)
As soon as you glimpse the Deogarh Mahal, you can see that its rulers must have been serious players in the Mewar aristocracy, their magnificent fort a fitting stronghold for one of its sixteen “umraos” - the most senior feudal barons attending on the Maharana of Udaipur At its most extensive, their territory comprised some 210 villages, with one of their defensive forts as far as 100 km away.
After much anticipation the illustrious Deogarh family have finished converting one of their forts into an exceptionally luxurious villa, and created the magical ‘Fort Seeghh Sagar’. This island fortress is truly awe-inspiring; sitting in the middle of a lake (monsoon dependent but currently surrounded by water) it can only be reached by boat (monsoon dependent, otherwise by dirt road) or by a small bridge and is set amidst a dramatic rocky landscape. Just 5 km from Deogarh Mahal and close to the ruins of the deserted village of Manpura, there are wonderful places to explore and excellent rural walking and bird watching to be done.
