Hindus believe that bathing in the Ganges River causes forgiveness of sin and helps attain salvation. Pilgrims also travel from far and wide to Varanasi to immerse the ashes of their loved ones into India's holiest river, sending the departed soul to heaven.

    I like this image because it is not posed and they are not aware of the camera.
