The Uttar Pradesh region

Uttar Pradesh was home to powerful empires of ancient and medieval India, including Magadha, Nanda, Mauryan, Sunga, Kushan, Gupta, Gurjara, Rashtrakuta, Pala and Mughal empires. The two major rivers of the state, the Ganga and Yamuna, join at Allahabad and then flow as the Ganga further east. The state has several historical, natural, and religious tourist destinations, such as the Taj Mahal, Varanasi, Piprahwa, Kaushambi, Kanpur, Ballia, Shravasti, Kushinagar, Lucknow, Chitrakoot, Jhansi, Allahabad, Meerut and Mathura.

Agra

The name Varanasi possibly originates from the names of the two rivers: Varuna, still flowing in Varanasi, and Asi, a small stream near Assi Ghat. The old city does lie on the north shores of Ganga river bounded by its two tributaries Varuna and Asi. Another speculation is that the city derives its name from the river Varuna, which was called Varanasi in olden times. This is generally disregarded by historians. Through the ages, Varanasi has been known by many names including Kashi (used by pilgrims dating from Buddha's days), K??ik? (the shining one), Avimukta ("never forsaken" by Shiva), ?nandavana (the forest of bliss), and Rudrav?sa (the place where Rudra/?iva resides).[12]

In the Rigveda, the city is referred to as K??? or Kashi, the luminous city as an eminent seat of learning.[13] The name K??? is also mentioned in the Skanda Purana. In one verse, Shiva says, "The three worlds form one city of mine, and K??? is my royal palace therein.

According to legend, Varanasi was founded by the god Shiva.[15] The Pandavas, the heroes of the Hindu epic Mahabharata are also stated to have visited the city in search of Shiva to atone for their sins of fratricide and Br?hmanahatya that they had committed during the climactic Kurukshetra war.[16]. It is regarded as one of seven holy cities which can provide Moksha:
