Photographer's Note

This picture happened by chance. :-) I just wanted to take a foto from the crowded Dasaswamedh Ghat.

Dasaswamedh Ghat is one of the most important Ghats of Varanasi. Dasaswamedh literally means the Ghat (river front) of ten sacrificed horses. According to legends ten horses were sacrificed by Lord Brahma to allow Lord Shiva to return from a period of banishment. In spite of the fact that Dasaswamedh is one of the oldest Ghats of Varanasi, dating back to many thousand years, the Ghat has remained unspoilt and clean.

Dasaswamedh provides a beautiful and colorful riverfront view. A large number of Sadhus can be seen performing religious rites on this Ghat. Devotees must not miss the opportunity of visiting the Dasaswamedh Ghat in the evening when after Aarti, thousands of earthen lamps are immersed in the waters of the holy Ganges and the floating lamps give a divine look to the river at dusk.

My personal opinion:
Varanasi and me We were not eternal loves. I admired and loved the city in one of the moments, but he disturb my stomach in the other one. Too many corpses move there in the living persons' world. This agitated me very much

I am sorry, my written english is very bad and i am not sure that I wrote it what I wanted.
