Suryauday Haveli

Suryauday Haveli, Varanasi, India

Suryauday Haveli on Shivala Ghats is a reflection of the traditional building style of the holy city of Varanasi, and occupies a river front location with views over the surrounding area.

The Haveli traces its history back to the early 20th century when It was built by the Royal Family of Nepal, and has been redeveloped to provide a comfortable and spacious interior whilst retaining the property's character and soul. Whilst a little further south from the most visited river front location than some of the other hotels in the city, the small number of rooms, roof terrace and intimate feel within the haveli make this the best option on the river front.

Please note that as with all hotels along the Ghats of Varanasi, Suryauday Haveli does not serve meat or alcohol.

      Evening Boatride to the Ghats


      In the early evening the ghats (or bathing steps) come alive once more as hundreds of pilgrims return for evening worship. Young priests from nearby ashrams perform their daily rituals looking out to the sacred Ganga, whilst conch shells and bells create a cacophony of sound.
