Bathing in the Ganges

Description

Few places in India are as colourful, charismatic or spiritual as the bathing ghats lining the Ganges in Varanasi. The city of Shiva is one of the holiest places in India, where Hindu pilgrims come to wash away a lifetime of sins in the Ganges or to cremate their loved ones. The magical but sometimes overwhelming city is where the most intimate rituals of life and death take place in public on the city’s ghats.
