Stock Photo Description
Stock photo of the infamous Burning Ghats at the holy city of Varanasi in India. The burning ghats also known in particular as Manikarnika Ghat are located on the banks of the holy River Ganges, one of India’s longest rivers. This is also one of India’s holiest religious sites where people come to die when near the end of their life or if fortunate enough to have been living nearby will be cremated at death at the burning ghats. This is said to be the ultimate end to life for Hindus with the flames of the sacred eternal fire turning the body to ashes which will then be cast into the sacred water of the holy river Ganges.
