A rowing boat ride at dawn along the Ganges is a quintessential Varanasi experience. The early-morning light is particularly inspiring, and all the color and clamour of pilgrims bathing and performing puja unfolds before you. An hour-long trip south from Dashashwamedh Ghat to Harishchandra Ghat and to Manikarnika Ghat and back is popular and be prepared to see a burning corpse at Harishchandra and Manikarnika Ghat The old buildings, ashrams and places along the river side tend to glow when the sun light hits them. The ancient name of the city “Kashi” signifies the same. People talking bath, performing rituals, worshiping to the Sun, washing clothes… it all happens
