Day begins in Varanasi, the holy city in India for Hindus. Located on the banks of the holy river Ganges, millions of pilgrims visit each year to bathe in the sacred waters. Being the oldest continuously inhabited city in India, Varanasi is chaotic and colorful, intense and frenetic. Although it is the holiest place for Hindus, the daily life of locals has no difference compared to the rest of the world.
