Varanasi - Shortcut to heaven

Varanasi in northern India, the city of Lord Shiva, is one of the holiest cities for Hindus and an important destination for devout Indian pilgrims. Many Hindus believe dying here offers instant moksha, liberation from the continuous cycle of birth and death. The sacred river of Ganges flows through the city, and devotees from all corners of the country flock to bathe in its water, a ritual believed to wash away all sins.
