Before Sunset at Gai Ghat
This was shot before sunset at Gai Ghat (also known as Gaya Ghat) which is one of the important spots in Varanasi (Benaras) along the Ganges.
The highlight there is a huge sculpted figure of a stone cow, from which the ghat got its name ‘Gai’ (cow in Hindi) and it is symbolizing the earth.
Those two young men were standing at a few stairs below where a smaller statue of Nandi (नंदी), the cow who is the gate keeper of Shiva in Hindu mythology, is facing a lingam with a snake on it.
Those friends had an hair cut a moment before and they were drying after a bath in the holy waters.
