I love mornings to walk out and around in a city to explore it's streets. It's the time of the day when even the busiest of the streets are calm and still waking up to the day ahead.
Varanasi is no different. Though the ghats get active fairly active even before sunrise and there are multiple things to do early in the morning there, including a visit to the traditional akharas where men practice Kushti, the rest of the city gets up a little bit late, especially in the famed narrow lanes.
Here is a photo-story from these streets of Varanasi, of a day that is about to start, on a winter morning :)

|Some shops do open early, even if though customers are rare at this hour|

|Hello! Sharing early morning pleasantries :)|
