The place to be in Varanasi is the Ghats, long steps that dive into the river. Pilgrims come here for a holy dip in the Ganges early in the morning. This picture was taken from a boat at about 8h in the morning.

Over the Ghats old palaces still reflect their beauty on the calm waters of the Ganges. I took this picture on the same early morning boat ride.

Sunset over the Ganges is perhaps even more beautiful than the sunrise. The sun coming down being the old palaces by the river was the perfect remedy for the stress we accumulated from days of jumping from train to train.

Apart from the rickshaw offers, boat ride proposals, quick massage, occasional gurus, hashish sellers, I have been having a lot of proposals for a beard cut lately, I wonder why...
