Banaras is famous for paan we all know. As there are numerous paan shop I was in search of one of the best paan shop. Assi Ghat was nearby location and we two we were riding rickshaw. Upon query from a passer-by knowledge was enhanced.
At Lanka there is Keshav and at Godowlia Chowk there is Gama Paan Bhandar.
As Lanka was nearby we decided to continue our ride. The shop is almost at the corner of Nagwan Road, Lanka crossing. I was amazed to watch more than 10 people waiting for their paan. I was another to join the waiting list. Our order was Meetha Paan. After ten minutes of waiting it was served. Cost Rs. 15/- per paan. And the taste, quality excellent. Worth waiting. Usually when we have paan it stays for long time inside our mouth but this paan melted so fast and flavor remained for longer time. It was Maghai for sure and the preparation the real talent.
Address: Keshav Pan Bhandar, Nagwan Road, Sant Ravidas Gate, Lanka, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh
Shop Timings: 6 am – 12 night.
Upon query I was told this shop is 60 years old but their ancestor’s oldest shop is at Vishwanath gali, nearby Dashashwamedh ghat.
