      ... fire, chanting, singing, flowers and thousands of people. They are worshipping Mother Ganges, the goddess of the river. Hindus believe that if you live in Varanasi, and die here, having lived a “good” life, you are freed from the cycle of rebirth and go directly to nirvana, so it is one of the most sacred places for them.
      The crush of humanity that makes the trek to the prayer ceremony that occurs each evening, is impressive, but the ...

      And of course, there are the large groups of people bathing in the river at all times of the day. Predominantly men, of all ages.

Namaste from ...

      After a very tasty vegetarian lunch, we walked to the cremation ghat and were stunned to see not only one cremation but 6 at the same time! We were allowed to watch from above and witnessed everything from the dipping of the bodies (thankfully wrapped in yellow decorative material) into the Ganga, then left on the ghat steps to dry before being put on a bed of wood and set alight. It takes ...
