23rd October – Khajuraho Temples, The River Ganges and Candles

24 Oct

1. What remarkable temples with the most amazing carvings all over them showing all aspects of human life in all its glory! In the photos are some of the musicians and and elephant, horse and a boar.

2. We took a boat down the Ganges after sunset to see the amazing ceremony of saying goodnight to Mother Ganges. There were thousands of people there and they show their love of and thanks to the river every single night with such devotion. It was very moving to be a small part of this.

3. We bought small marigold and candle offerings that are made by the children, lit the candles and put them in the river with a prayer or a wish. I’ll put up lots more photos when we return.
