Varanasi, also known as Banaras, is one of the oldest continuously inhabited city on earth. Situated along the banks of the sacred river Ganga, Varanasi is among the most revered religious destinations in India.
Entering Varanasi is stepping in a melting pot of cultures from India and beyond, with ancient buildings falling to ruins, red brickwork, connected congested lanes, intrusive modern buildings, soot covered temples and carpets of ash.
In timeless rituals, at every sunrise pilgrims descend the colorful ghats to bathe in the sacred waters of the Ganges. Seen from the river, the scene is a kaleidoscope of colors of the unique architecture reflecting in the peaceful waters forming abstract patterns and shapes that make up and flow at the pace of the rituals along the river banks.
