banganga tank

this man made tank of water (that is supposedly fed by spring water) is considered a holy site, surrounded by many hindu temples. people do their washing here, dip themselves in the water and just sit on the steps and relax. apparently it used to be surrounded by old style bungalows, but now its slowly being dwarfed by high rise buildings. at least they have left this one little area in tact

This photo looks a bit like Varanasi, with the steps down to the water.
