“The oldest living city in the world”.

This picture was shot during the month of Saawan (July-August), the month of Shiva, at Dasashvamedha Ghat in Varanasi (Benaras).

There are a few women among those thousands of pilgrims who are coming to worship river Ganga गंगा (Ganges) at that time.
This lady is a devotee of Lord Shiva as she is wearing a basanti (orange) color sari.
It was shot a Monday, Shiva’s day, when the city has the most important number of pilgrims coming for bathing in the river in order to find the forgiveness of sins and hoping to attain salvation.
