Photographer's Note

A group of buffaloes bathing in Ganga holy river, Benares. One can observe also the people activities on that river. Varanasi has been a cultural centre for several thousand years, and is closely associated with the Ganges. Hindus believe that to die here will bring salvation, making it a major pilgrimage site. Archaeological evidence of the earliest known settlements around Varanasi are dated to the 11th or 12th century before Christ (BC) placing it among the world's oldest continually inhabited cities.
