Light of Kashi
The city in which gods come down to earth - the holy Varanasi - stands on a high bank of the river Gang from time immemorial. This is a place of a miraculous power, where all the spiritual essence of India reveals itself, tradition is indissoluble and time goes otherwise. Every stone here breathes with Shiva and the space is filled with life. Its air vibrates with mantras, songs of birds and voices of children. The ancient name of the city - Kashi - means “shining”. The one who feels Kashi can see this light in every place here.
