Varanasi is one of the oldest cities in the world and one of the very few ancient cities that is still alive. Its one of India's most culturally rich cities.
Here are some of my pictures taken during my several tours. Nothing much has changed over the years I had seen the city.I got up really early and went to the ghat. To my surprise, the place had awakened much before me.
I lead tours to Varanasi, if you want to join, please feel free to reach out to me.
My scheduled tour is mentioned here.
This sadhu was painting his forehead preparing himself for his daily prayers.
Though some ghats were crowded, some were lonely.
Tips for photographers
Be ready to walk a lot; really a lot.
Wear slippers not shoes.
Get going before daybreak, take some rest in the afternoon and come back in the evening.
Don't stick to one place for long (unless you are sure about a shot) - keep moving.
Thank you for reading this post. Hope you liked spending time here. I will be back again with another interesting place.
