Our small double room with bathroom. Shower with hot and cold water. Fan, cost 500 inr per night (our nabo had a bigger room but not so much daylight for 450inr).
They only have 4 rooms. One ac for 1000 inr. The fan room we have in the front and the ac room would be the best once to pick .
Right on assi ghat. Good pizza close by , and open hand cafe up the street with good food and shopping.

The body is respectfully placed on top of the wood and other ...

... their souls of sin. Every evening there are ceremonies on the main ghats where hundreds if not thousands come to watch the well choreographed river worship ceremony. We sat among the sea of boats soaking up the contagious atmosphere.

Another boat ride at Dawn gave us a completely different experience of the holy river. Although the sunrise was nonexistent through the mist, it was still a magical place to be as we watched our candles float down the ...

A dancing and fire ritual is performed in several locations by local priests and religious students. Called Ganga Aarti, it is done to put the Ganges to bed. A similar ritual is carried out in the morning however he evening event is attended by thousands making it quite a spectacle viewed from the relative calm of a boat in the river. Nandan bought a ...
