Varanasi, the City of Light

 The traffic is insane, the cattle rule, and there is almost a carnival-like atmosphere to what many view as the spiritual heart of India. There is a poignancy here, as one recognizes that the city is one for those awaiting their final days on earth.


                                                     A major cremation site on the riverbank.


                   Evening lights cast a beautiful glow on aged buildings and the still waters of the Ganges.


                                       Witnessing the aarti, the nightly recital of spiritual songs.
