Stock Photo Description
Stock photo of a boats point of view. A superb View of Varanasi at the Bathing Ghats on the River Ganges in this holiest of Indian Hindu Holy cities. This View of Varanasi as seen from one of the local rowing boats is an interesting View of Varanasi with riverside Temples, ancient Hindu Temples some built many hundreds of years ago. This is a great way to see the scale of the bathing ghats lined with temples, boats and home to all manner of religious activities that occur at any time of day. The bathing ghats go on for kilometres down the Ganges riverbank and each spot has its own bathing ghat and named. For instance the more than interesting (although somewhat macabre) live cremations take place at Manikarnika ghat.
