Early in the morning on the ghats in Varanasi. Ganges is the heart and soul of the city and many people come to perform several activities like praying , bathing or washing their clothes in the holy water of the Ganges river. The city has nearly 100 ghats, most of which are bathing ghats on the Ganges river , while some others are for cremation.
very well captured. great shot of an amazing place. I'd love to visit varanasi and see all those people washing and bathing in Ganges River.
GReat photoo (LL)
¡¡¡¡ Yo quiero ir a Varnasi ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ Muy bonita foto .
Don't tell me this was also the place where they cremate the dead and was them down this river?
hehehe...Varanasi... the same place my friend, the same place . Manikarnika Ghat, one of the burning ghats, was pretty close to this place .
Do you think it is right bathing in waters with ashes of the dead? :S
well... it's not the ashes that should bother you... if you take it this way then you should think more about the bodies that are not burned but thrown in the river... or about the fact that they drink from it and wash their teeth with it. I prefer to think about the religious aspects and try to understand the reasons .
i dont think they throw the bodies in the river. They burnt them as usual. + If I was a serial killer, I could murder them and then burn them without permission in the middle of the night.
Actually they do throw dead bodies in the river... children less than 12 years, pregnant women and some other categories of dead ppl are not burned but thrown into the river with tied weights .
Excellent, you can explore the picture for ages!
Interesting and fantastic.
What they doin? Is that kinda morning shower?
That's crazy and super cool. Great photo for sure.
i like it because everyone is doing something different
Nice capture, its humorous to me.
