Assi ghat, Shivala, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh 221005, India
Sunrise in VaranasiSunrise is one of the best times to experience Varanasi. Along the ghats (the steps leading down to the river), you'll find locals meditating, doing yoga, washing themselves in the river, and generally getting ready for the day.
The opposite side of the river from Varanasi, you can see from photo, is the exact opposite: it's barren and devoid of anything, complete nothingness. Which is interesting, considering the inhabited side is maximum crammed chaos all the time.
