The city of Varanasi is the birthplace of the mystic poet and saint Kabir Das. Kabir Chaura, a neighbourhood in central Varanasi, is said to be the place where he lived. In his honour, a memorial called Kabir Math has been erected that boasts paintings depicting the events of the saint's life. Tourists can also visit the nearby Ramapura locality, which is popular for being the home of a large number of illustrious artistes, including classical musicians Pandit Bade Ramdas, Harishankar Mishra, tabla player Samta Prasad, and vocalists brothers Rajan and Sajan Mishra. Also known as the “mohalla of musicians”, the Banaras gharana (school) of music has thrived here. 

The Chaura is located north of the Banaras Hindu University, near Kabir Chura Hospital, DAV Inter College, Adarsh Grounds and Gandhi Park. One can travel here easily as it lies about 2 km from the Varanasi and Kashi Railway Stations.
