Kasi is the first place that flashes across your mind, whenever you think of a pilgrimage; the first indispensable visit-worthy thirtha kshetra dedicated to Lord Maheswar abiding in the Jyotirlinga; the first in the list of All India yatra-cum-tourist centres proudly advertised by the Tourist Organisers, marked with a big dot in their map; the first place of first preference for both vanaprasthasram -- the last stage in life, and kshetrasanyasa -- binding the pledger's presence in this city till death; the first place of pious Hindu's last wish to breathe his last there and immersion of ashes in Ganga; the first seat of ancient Viswavidyalaya, specialized in Sanskrit studies and traditional lore; the first holy city having the much-revered bathing ghats numbering 64; the first holy city boasting of modern Hindu University, imparting education in 42 different branches of knowledge, and Hindu culture in all its aspects; the first of the most ancient living cities, displaying the vestiges of Vedic culture; the first that witnessed the performing of ten horse sacrifices one after another; and the first of many such firsts; for, it is the first dear most seat of Lord Maheswar, who Himself on selecting for permanent settlement pronounced, "The three worlds form one city of mine, and Kasi is my Royal Palace therein". So the galore firsts can be stretched as far as patience permits, since it is the endless and extant pilgrim centre since time immemorial.
