An appropriate way to conclude our visit to the Ganges was attendance at an AArti Festival. The devotees reverence and the monks' choreographed display was illuminating.

Overwhelming getting into and out of this venue. Traffic and bodies everywhere surrounding the ghat. Super cool. The ceremony with the priests was a spectacle to behold. This is an absolute must in Varanasi, don't miss it.
