About Benaras Ghats
Watching people bathe in the Ghats , pilgrims performing pujas, being cleansed by the holy water. The sun, at sunrise and sunset, plays on the river water and illuminates this most quintessential of Indian destinations. Colors flock together; clothes are pressed on the riverbank, holy men meditate and women gossip. The Ghats are the center of Varanasi.
