Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India: Part III – Alleyways

Thank-you for visiting Big Mountain Photography where the Varanasi, India adventure continues with a visualization of the network of narrow back alleyways which parallel the 87 Ghats and River Ganga. Varanasi alleyways are but a dichotomy stuck in time while all else in Varanasi works hard to modernize. I enjoyed the feeling of times gone by.

It’s easy to get lost and even Google Maps may not set you in the correct direction – be careful. 🙂
