Keshav Pan Bhandar (60 years old) – Best Paan Shop in Varanasi

Keshav Pan Bhandar, Nagwan Road, Sant Ravidas Gate, Lanka, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India

Banaras is famous for paan, as we all know. As there is numerous paan shop, I was in search of one of the best paan shop. Assi Ghat was a nearby location, and we two were riding rickshaw. Upon query from a passer-by, knowledge was enhanced.

In 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, and quality is excellent. Worth waiting. Usually, when we have paan it stays for a long time inside our mouth, but this paan melted so fast and the flavor remained for a longer time. It was Maghai for sure and the preparation was the real talent.

Address: Keshav Pan Bhandar, Nagwan Road, Sant Ravidas Gate, Lanka, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh

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.
