We stayed for the whole afternoon. I had seen a cremation in a small village on a river. This is full on ritual. My local friend asked if this went on in my country. I told him this would land you in jail!

Hindu Temple to Shiva, with cremation ghats along the river. . Rishi's smoking hashish all day, and many elderly residents. Only Hindus are allowed in the main temple, but the grounds are really interesting, Not to be missed.

It was a privilege to watch a very public cremation ceremony in this sacred place. A very sympathetic way to honor the dead.
