Experience the spiritual atmosphere of Ganges River in Varanasi, the holiest of the many cities nestled on the massive river’s banks. The sacred river attracts pilgrims from all over the country who come to take a dip in its waters, as well as a number of people hoping to be cremated there when they pass, so as to be freed from the cycle of reincarnation. On a boat ride along the river, you can observe the numerous "ghats" (stone steps that lead into the water), used for the rituals of bathing and cremation. Plan my trip to Varanasi with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
