Caption: Funeral pyre in India. Shrouded dead body being cremated in a funeral pyre of burning wood on the banks of the Ganges River in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India. Many Hindu pilgrims visit this city to bathe in the Ganges, a river that is holy in Hinduism. Terminally ill Hindus often chose to spend their last days in this city, so their relatives can cremate them and place their ashes in the Ganges.
