Check these amazing photographs of Varansi by Bangladeshi Photographer Ashraful Arefin.
Ashraful Arefin explaining about this project to Boredpanda:
“Being one of the oldest living city of the world, Varanasi has always been a magical and mystical place to me. When I got the chance to travel to India this year, Varanasi was my first priority.
I traveled there in January on a 7 day solo trip. For me Varanasi is more than a city or a place to travel, It’s something to be felt deep within. There’s a certain peacefulness and spiritual feel to there even in the busiest ghats of the river Ganges. The most interesting and fascinating thing anyone could experience is the obvious circle of life and death. Death is so normal and like a part of everyday life there! Live cremation of dead bodies happening almost every hour. That really makes you realise how uncertain our lives can be and at the end nothing will go with us. It was like taking a spiritual journey for me.”
