Saraswati Puja Festival

Varanasi life on the ghats


The last day of the Saraswati Festival,

the Goddess of Knowledge & Arts was brought to the Holy Ganga to immerse Her.

Saraswati was dressed in yellow garments, sign of auspiciousness and spirituality.


The whole town went crazy by a never ending procession of Saraswati statues

carried around on enlightened cars with big loudspeakers,

students dancing wild on deafening music till late in the night.
