Varanasi

Location: Varanasi, India

Sunrise and sunset on the Ganges

View from the motorised boat which took us along the banks.The Aarti ceremony, the festival of light

At sunrise...The sellers were out in force, selling candles and marigolds set in a banana leaf dish which we floated on the holy waters.

Worshippers sing, dance, chant, ring bells

We lit our candles to float and made a wish.

Washing in the holy water

All sorts of activities on the Ghats of the Ganges ( the steps), including the funeral pyres

The sun is up

Morning prayers and floating garlands of marigolds

We return to the ghats in the evening to watch the sunset.

We walked through the city. The street people.

The sun goes down

Views from a rowing boat this time.
