... that had lots of interesting celestial observation equipment, including a sun dial accurate to 15 seconds.

We hurried back to the hotel to meet with him at 17:00 and we headed up the ghats in the other direction, stopping at the burning ghat. This is one of the places they burn their dead. The corpse is shaved and washed by the family and tightly wrapped in a cloth. One member is chosen to light the fire and they cover themselves ...

... buildings. However, destruction of illegal buildings is not accompanied by a requirement to remove the debris from the destroyed building, leaving a horrible mess of derelict concrete, reinforcing steel and bricks as a complete eyesore.
