4.35am on the Ganges

Ganga Mahal Ghat

 

Varanasi 05.11

 

We were whisked through the deserted streets of Varanasi from our hotel in order to experience the Hindu Ceremony of Aarti that takes place before dawn and at sundown. The first view shows the deserted Ganga Mahal Ghat at 04.35 and the second, looking north at 05.11 shows the Holy Ganges in the blackness of the pre-dawn night.
