Ghats of Banaras

There is a sense of enigma in this vintage city, a warmth of sorts which surrounds you in every tiny lane of Banaras. I find myself in the state of awe every time I hear the temple bells ringing at the ghats of river Ganga. This is a feeling which you experience once and it lives with you forever. Here are a few stills from my recent visit.

The calm of the Ganges, the boat ride at sunrise, the ever bustling Ghats, the ancient temples, the narrow alleys, the chanting of mantras, the devotional hymns – all offer a kind of mystifying experience that is unique to the city of Shiva.
