Photographer's Note

"The oldest living city in the world".

There was a legend who told me this story that there was a man who made this temple for her mother with the intention to pay everything she did for him.
The mother became furious and said that nothing could ever paid a mother's love and cursed the temple and it started to bend like the tower of Pisa. Now this building did not be counted as a temple. When the flow and level of Ganga river became high the building almost sink itself.


This is a view of temple in Varanasi (Benaras) in Uttar Pradesh.
I took this shot a few days back at Scindia ghat when river Ganga was very low .

~Just converted the original picture to sepia tone and give some effect so looks old.~
