Being on the banks of a deep flowing long river going to the seas, Varanasi remained an industrially prosperous town in the past, and continues to enjoy that status even today. Alongside the religious and cultural Varanasi flourishes commercial Varanasi, where artisans and traders carry on prosperous business in silks and brocades, chunky gold and filigreed silver ornaments, fancy brassware, choice tobacco and heady Indian perfumes.
