Varanasi : Hidden Temple

On the last afternoon, we were looking for a place to have lunch and spotted what looked like a pretty outdoor restaurant inside what must have been an old haveli at some point in time. We hopped off our rickshaw and went in. The restaurant was pretty, but the food was more than average, and I suspect it’s what I ate there that was responsible for my not feeling well, the following day. Should have stuck to the street side stalls selling chaat. Anyway, inside that open area was the most beautiful little temple, built apparently by some maharajah who still comes to visit once a year. Look at that beauty.

  1. that temple is beautiful, the details on the columns incredible. Do you usually just walk in and eat in restaurants? strange question I know, but how is the food hygiene in general??

  2. Hygiene in general is terrible in India, and even worse in the north than in the south. So the usual rules of the traveller apply : don't eat anything that's not cooked. The food stalls selling chaat are OK, because the food is cooked right there in front of you. Hygiene is not fantastic, still, and after years of living in India, and before that, in Nigeria, I think that my system can take a lot. 🙂
