Exploring the ghats along the Ganges
One of my most memorable experiences was to spend a few days to explore and document the many ghats along the Ganges in Varanasi. I have arrived in Varanasi with a few members of AsiaExplorers. Over the next few days we went out own way, while regrouping for meals and room.
Armed with a tripod, I explored the western bank of the Ganges. It makes a gentle curve, and on this curve is the city of Varanasi. It is here that Varanasi is the most photogenic. There are about close to a hundred ghats (some say more), which are steps leading down to the water. I managed to photograph and document a good deal of them, which you can view here.
Upon discovering Things Asian, I thought it would be worth while to share with you the documentation that I have done. If you have also visited the ghats, please write to me email@example.com and share with me your experience - I'd be delighted to hear from you.
