Ganges River Ghats

The Ganges Ghats are the central point of the Hindu religion in India. And Varanasi is the center of that.

This is where Hindus get married, die and are cremated. All of life is here.

Ganges Culture

This part of the world attracts travelers from across the globe. It is not an easy place to travel. But it is one of the most fascinating. One can still experience a culture that is thousands of years old and has overwhelmed every other influence to come in contact with it.

One of the best things about india from a writer or phographer's perspective is that everything is on the table. All the good, and all the bad. It's out in the open. Not hidden away like in much of the West. Here is the Ganges, in all its glory and filth.
