Like every year, last November too, the Mahindra Kabira Festival 2022 opened its arms to its guests, alongside the banks of a timeless river, in a city 'older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend'. We spent three memorable days soaking in the wisdom of the 15th-century mystic & poet – Kabir – with music, literature, and discourse.
The 2023 edition Festival will be held from 15th - 17th December. The programme will include a plethora of classical and folk music, talks, art demonstrations, the characteristic Kabira boat rides, a delectable local food journey and the quintessential Ganga Arati experience. Heritage walks will unlock the lanes, the shops & sights of this incredible city for our delegates.

Loved listening to the melodious singing, watching the ganges flow by at 6:30 am in the morning
The river and the heritage walk, The Mornings by the Ganges, listening to Kabir while Benares goes about its daily activites - Loved it!
The 'Kabira' songs, the warm vibrant people, the river ganges, The event in this setting and the wonderful hospitality. I also liked walking along the ghats- but how can I forget the 'climbs' everyday. These have also made us fitter. A private dip in the 'sacred ganges' for ladies should be organised
The exposure to Banaras as a city - I learned that you can be happy amidst the chaos & confusion!
Music early morning! It was pure bliss!! Aartis- People are simply amazing and the volunteers superb.
