Varanasi – Colour Palette

 

The Ganges has been drawing men and women to its banks at Varanasi for at least 3000 years.  Today, they come to offer prayers and take holy dips at a site considered one of India’s most sacred.  They come to cremate their loved ones at the ghats, literally “steps” leading to the waters.

Known to westerners as Benares and to the devout as Kasi, place of light, Varanasi is said to be the oldest living city in the world.  With more than 2000 temples and 15,000 shrines, it is also the holiest of the seven holy cities of India.

I call this inspirational palette Varanasi.
