Every year my mom and I bring people to India. This is Varanasi. We’re on our way to see the Ayurvedic doctor.
Varanasi is a holly city right on the Ganges (Ganga) river. Shiva is the main deity. There is one temple right on the river where they cremate bodies 24 hours a day.
It’s an amazing ritual that has gone on for more than 3000 years.
The Buddha gave his first sermon near there in Sarnath which is about 20 minutes from Varanasi.
