Photographer's Note

Varanasi, hinduism's holiest city, supposed to help being freed from the rebirth cycle according to the hindu rites, hosts all year long people to come and purify themselves from their sins by taking a holy dip into Ganga Ma, Mother Ganges.

Walking on the ghats at sunrise is an unforgettable and unbelievable experience that will make you feel the power of spirituality in India. The narrow alleys in the old town, off the ghats are also a great place to hang around. I'd say Varanasi is the only place where I'm sure to go back whenever I go back to northern India (and of course Delhi or Kolkata, depending on where I land, but also because I liked these places).
