The Hindu Fire Ritual in Varanasi really wowed us. It was one of the most amazing performances we’ve ever seen. It was truly magical (both literally and figuratively). Some of the locals sat on the ghats while others sat in boats on the river, casting little butter candles into the river. We’ve seen some amazing acts performed live, but this wasn’t just a performance…it was a religious ceremony and it was powerful. The videos don’t do it justice. If you ever travel to Varanasi, get a guide and go to the Hindu Fire Ritual!
