Blessing

Above Manikarnika ghat in the holy city of Benares is this beautiful temple. The main deity is a lingam, symbole of Shiva (principle of transformation), but the whole place is organised like a Vishnu temple, with the number eight as pattern. Manikarnika is the place where all the gods meet, people even say some of them come to bath on the ghat everyday, but no one know wich form they take to do so…
