KASI
The Royal place of Lord Siva

This universally famous; eternally young; perpetually divinising, religiously emancipating; spiritually ever-growing, and morally undiminishing city has many more august names that published its glorious past and beckons a visit sooner than hearing it. It was called Varanasi, for, it is an island surrounded by the holy waters of Varuna and Asi - the tributaries of Mother Ganga; Kasi, for it is the place of supreme brilliance - tremendous shrining, lighting up the way to Nirvari; Avimuktaka - for it is free from sin on account of lord's eternal presence; Ananda Kanana; for it affords the highest delight to Lord Mahasmasana; for, here lie the five elements in great cemetery, as dead bodies reach after final destruction. And lastly Banaras, a corrupt form of Varanasi in use till 1956, and was changed to Varanasi by Government. Skanda purana grows eloquent and pours down in torrents evidence to testify the glory of this holiest of holies in as many as 15,000 verses. A great honour! A covetable place!! An enviable asset!!! None can claim any comparison.
