Daily Life in Holy City

Varanasi, on the riverbank of Ganges, is the holiest city for Hinduism, attracting hundreds of Hindu pilgrims every day from all parts of India. The fascinating rituals along the riverbank have been extensively photographed by journalists. However, another fascinating part of this city which is often missed by tourists is the daily life of locals inhabiting deeply in the community. Life of the city bursts into activities from all aspects in the early morning and goes on until midnight. Being the oldest continuously inhabited city in India, the daily life in Varanasi is chaotic and colorful, intense and frenetic.
