DEV DEEPAWALI AT VARANASI

The Dev Deepavali is the festival of Kartik Poornima celebrated in Varanasi, UP, India. I took this photograph during Dev Deepavali festival in 2016. The steps and walls of all the ghats of Ganges River are lit and decorated with lights in honour of the Ganges, and its presiding Goddess.
