Well, a visit to the ghats is a must. Take a boat ride at dawn and welcome the sun (very difficult in this cold I agree but totally worth it). You should not miss the aarti held in teh evenings - its very dramatic. Then of course there are the old Banke Bihari temple and such. I like BHU - it has a very soothing and calm campus. The campus temple is likewise worth a visit. How can one forget shopping when in Banaras? - Hunt around for the silk material and sarees. Try the various chaats and paan (though to be honest I prefer the Calcutta variety).

Hey...since food is the priority here is a very different of my friends recommends a lovely Japanese restaurant - IBA (yeh that's the beauty). The restaurant is just one and a half km from Dashashwmedha Ghat. If you wish to tickle your taste buds with Greek and Mediterranean food, there is a place on the way to the Dashashwmedaha Ghat. There is a square after which vehicular traffic is stopped and one has to walk on foot. Turn left at the square and there is haveli that serves the great food. The person doesn't remember the name of the restaurant but says that the name starts with P. All the best
