It is regarded as a holy city by the Hindus, Buddhists and Jains. The city of Varanasi has the distinction of being the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world and probably the oldest in India.

Another speculation about the origin of the name is that the river Varuna itself was called Varanasi in olden times, from which the city got its name. This is generally disregarded by historians.
