India. Varanasi. Puja at the Ghats

By GrahamBaines
The Puja is a Hindu ritual of worship and can be seen year round at the Ghats on the Banks of the Ganges in Varanasi although it's not particular to the Ghats, it's practiced by people all over the Hindu world.

Its sight, sounds and smells fill the senses, with costumes, lights, music and burning incense. Quite something to behold, and definately something you're unlikely to forget...

Hope you like it.
