The City of light, Benaras, as is popularly known, or Varanasi, welcomes and opens her soul to all those who want to have at least a glimpse of it!
Following its spirit, is a little abode in the heart of the city, Aashray, where old meets new, tradition meets progression, respect for privacy meets Indian Hospitality!
Aashray comes with the touch of hospitality of Mrs and Mr Kapur, known to be one of the best hosts in the city. An extremely courteous couple.
Mr Kapur, although a Consultant by profession is an avid reader of Hindi literature and devotes a lot of his time in keeping alive the culture and arts of Varanasi. Widely traveled across India, Mr Kapur has a rich background of knowledge of Indian culture which shines through in all his interactions. You can even request for Mr Kapur’s company on your city and Ganges tour for an enriching experience.
Mrs Kapur, a designer and a post graduate in Indian Classical music, is known more for her warmth and the magic she creates with the Indian veggies (you might almost forget your meats and fish for a while!) She can thrill you with fresh, simple yet delectable dishes from her kitchen (fondly referred to as the 'Tasty-Health Food Lab' by guests) that are an intrinsic part of the Indian hospitality.
Staying with the Kapurs, you get to sample the unique mix of traditional and modern values that personify the India of today.
Thanks to their interest in Yoga, Indian history, local culture, cuisines and customs, they are able to share a lot in the moments that you are part of their lives.
Let the spirituality, colours and chaos of this ancient city entice you, while Aashray, indulges and relaxes your soul with its warmth, in its own unique way.
