Bathing on Varanasi Ghats to purify themselves from sin.

Varanasi is the oldest living historical city in the world where people from time immemorial i.e. right before 5th B.C. come here to purify themselves from sins by taking holy dip in river ‘Ganges’.  This place is known for sunrise, and boating has become the favorite pastime by both devotees and tourists on the Ganges.  Varanasi is a sacred place where all sects of ascetics, yogis, sadhus and other holy men live and engage in their learning, penances, worshiping activities suitable to their sects.  It is a land of great learning of occult science, philosophy of life, life after death, metaphysics, magic, transmigration of soul, etc..  It is an enchanting land of salvation blessed by Lord Shiva, the main deity of this place.
