Friday Flashback – The Ganges River and Ghats in Varanasi

by Dave on October 30, 2009 · 6 comments


Varanasi is a pilgrimage site for many Hindus in India (and around the world) as it sits along the holy Ganges River.  Along with Old Islamic Cairo in Egypt and the old part of Kathmandu in Nepal, Varanasi offers great photographic opportunities with every step.

These two Varanasi posts include a lot of my favorite shots, while the side trip to Sarnath offers views of the site where Buddha gave his first sermon.
