Spiritual India :
Hindus believe it's a particularly auspicious place to die, since dying here offers moksha (liberation from the cycle of rebirth), and making it a major centre for Hindu pilgrims who bathe in the Ganges River’s sacred waters and perform funeral rites to cremate their loved ones. It is believed that a single dip in the holy waters of the Ganges can wash away a lifetime of sins.
This is one of the world's oldest continually inhabited cities which has been standing for over 5,000 years and is a magical place where rituals of life and death take place in public, and the sights, sounds and smells can be intense.
It is famous for its muslin and silk fabrics, perfumes, ivory works, and sculpture. It was the place where the Benares Gharana form of Hindustani classical music was developed.
As the sun goes down, the evening ritual of worship, called the Ganga Aarti, unfolds.
