... so women are not allowed because they're "too emotional". He walked me right up to the burning bodies, which was somewhat horrifying, but also fascinating to see such an important Hindu ritual up close.

... of the river.

As we headed down river just a bit from the main ghat we noticed fires burning in the distance and Pradeep told us that we were about to pass by the most famous and original crematorium, established here hundreds, probably thousands, of years ago. At this site they cremate over 600 bodies every single day and while it was a very interesting having a chance to witness such an important part of the Hindu religion, it will certainly go down as one ...
