Mini Varanasi is not far from Agra

Agra – Bateshwar village is often described as a mini Varanasi as it is a holy riverside village for Hindus full of Shiva temples. This small village is infinitely more peaceful than Varanasi. It is very enjoyable to go boating here on the river Yamuna and enjoy the feeling of peaceful reverence among the temples. Across the river there is a meadow, and trees full of birds, so only the songs of the birds and the many pleasant bells of the temple can be heard all the time. Bateshwar hosts the second largest cattle fair in India once every year, in November. Here you can enjoy peace away from the hustle and bustle.
