While we never visited this place on purpose, it was found by accident, it was a very moving and spiritual experience. While not for everyone still worth a visit.

This place is a must see for anyone interested in the culture or Hindu religion. The place is open to Hindus 24 hours and people from all over come to cremate their loved ones. There was one happening while we were there and was fascinating.

While it may not be for everyone, i was fascinated. The rituals and attention to family are amazing. Go with a guide that can explain what is happening and you will get much more from the visit.
