Photos: some views of Varanasi (Update: more photos)

Even as it has already a while since i returned to Delhi, I still want to post some of thees shots i have taken in the old Citz of Varanasi. Varanasi settled on the banks of the rivers Ganges is one of the holiest cities of India. Many Hindus travel to Varanasi just to die here, so there body’s get burned on the Ghats of Varanasi. Most of this photos have been taken during a boots-tour in the early morning.

– to my Indian friends: sorry if you see here a lot of “standard-indian-tourist-photos” but these are still quite interesting for all other nationalities.
