Photographer's Note

Photo from the soutern Ghats, where the river "The Ganaga" let people walk on water.

I remeber you all to check last Indias photos for more notes about Varanasi.

Let's say in this one that the original name of the city is Kashi, name of a deity. And that everyone that enters the city must be aware of this two or three things. Kashi is deity of the city. Shiva walks the streets of Kashi daily, his name there is Vishvanath, and Ganga purifies the holy city with its water.

There in Benares you will find the Vishvanath temple, inside, a jyotilingam.

The lingam represents Shiva, the masculine energy, and most of temples in India have a lingam inside. Few only have a jyoti lingam. Thjey say that inside the stone of the lingam there is a living light. A light of Shiva.

After reading all this, is simple to understand that people is able to walk over Ganges.
