As before, the MKF team has curated for you a mélange` of treats. This year, the coveted Delegate Package offers freedom of choice! You have free rein to design your package: you do not have to book your hotel with us to get the “festival experience”. There are options to let you book what you choose to do at the festival – you can book yourself just the heritage walks and the boat rides or book your stay at designated MKF hotels and get the accesses you seek.
An opening reception on the evening before the festival will feature a gala dinner against the backdrop of the majestic Ganga dotted with boats and lit up with the glow of countless candles.
Begin your day at Mahindra Kabira with an invigorating and a soul-cleansing Morning Music Programme, featuring Kabir veterans who will perform in the mornings of both festival days.
As the morning music invigorates your soul, indulge your taste buds with a typical Benarasi breakfast and a kullad of chai by the ghats.
The afternoons will be spent at Mahindra Kabira in perfect harmony with the lyrical ambience with some energising chai and contemplative literary discourses.
To help you live, breathe and get into the skin of one of the world’s oldest cities, specially guided walks curated by the city’s expert chroniclers, pre-booked and pre-ordered, are on the anvil. These walks will unlock the city’s mysteries, help you understand the gentle passion of Kabir’s philosophies and the boundless embrace of his persuasion.
While your eyes have feasted on the sights of Varanasi, treat your appetites to a scrumptious lunch and refresh yourselves for the evening.
Mahindra Kabira days will end with their swashbuckling finale – get onto boats to travel to the destination of the Mahindra Kabira Evening Music Programme. Musicians will be staged on the river under the stars; let go, give in to the moment as you experience the magic of music on the banks of a timeless river, thronging with people, colour, sound and melody, redolent of a mighty past and a history of coming together of diverse cultures.
End your day with a delicious fare of specially selected delicacies from Benaras, for a true Mahindra Kabira experience!
