A delightful experience with IndiatorMay 09 2018
I recently visited Varanasi, the land of poets. The divineness of the place had a great impact on me. The boat ride across the Ganga river was a memorable experience. Along with the place, I really liked the well-organized approach of Indiator that helped me to enjoy a carefree stay in Varanasi.
