Manikarnika Ghat on the bank of the Ganges, is one of the famous places in the heritage city Varanasi, India. The popular belief as per Hinduism is that if the last-rite or cremation of any dead-body of a hindu is done in this burning-ghat/ crematorium, the same soul will not have the chance of rebirth and it will lead to ultimate release eternally from the clutches of ephemeral world. Over several centuries and still, the practice of such traditional-burning using wood is on and it's considered as holy affair for the near and dear ones of the deceased person. The practice of using wood which is inconvenient compared to the current technology of electric-oven, is from the deep-rooted belief many a centuries and wood is an integral part of this.
On my travel to the Varanasi city, I visited the spot and took the photo.
