Situated at Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, the ghats stretch for some three km along the west banks of holy river Ganges. It is widely believed that a dip in the sacred river may bring salvation and free one from all sins. Varanasi or Kashi is older than traditions. For thousands of years, people have been thronging these ghats to offer their morning prayers to the rising sun. There are more than 100 ghats along side Ganga in Varanasi. The ghats typify the circle of life.
