Varanasi aka Banaras is one of the oldest living cities in the world and there is no doubt about it.
Mark Twain rightly said “Banaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice old as all of these put together”
Located in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, Varanasi is a spiritual city for the Hindu religion. Its here the final funeral rites are performed.
As a photographer the city has something new to offer in every step. From the ghats and the early morning prayers, to the kids and Sadhu’s on the streets one can find subjects in all directions.
