Varanasi or Banaras, also known as Kashi is one of the oldest living city in the world. Mark Twain the English author and literate, once wrote "Banaras is older than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together". It is also famed as the seat of learning and the oldest habitation of the world.

In the remote past the philosophers, Saints, Sages, Social reformers and Preacher used to come to Kashi for Learning and exchanging their views. Sarnath is seven miles away form here where Lord Buddha preached his first sermon more than 2500 years ago.

Transmitter
Varanasi came up on the Doordarshan map on 26th August 1984 with commissioning of a 10 Kilowatt High Power TV Transmitter inaugurated by the then Hon'ble Prime Minister of India late Smt. Indira Gandhi.

Subsequent augmentation of TV services in Varanasi was Doordarshan studio setup in 1998 and DD Metro 10 Kilowatt High Power Transmitter in 2000.

An important milestone was added when old valve based BEL make Transmitter catering to DD#1 services, was replaced by latest state of art, liquid cooled, digital based, R&S NM7100, 10 Kilowatt TV Transmitter.

This transmitter can also be converted to digital equivalent transmitter NW7100 at relatively low cost. Remote-Control via serial interface is a standard feature in this Transmitter.
