This is the famous Benaras or Varanasi Ganga Aarti in the evening. It happens twice-once in the morning and another in the evening. The evening one is world famous for its glamour and huge crowd. It creates an awe-inspiring event everyday. This is a tradition for years in the oldest living city of the world. It happens on the Dashawamedh Ghat situated on the bank river Ganges.
