A flower-adorned sadhu on the ghats of Dashashwamedh. These colorful figures are an ever-present feature of these ghats, adding spice and flavor to a place already brimming over due to sensory overload.


This flower-adorned sadhu seemed to have been a regular fixture on the ghats of Dashashwamedh. This region is home to quite a few of these wandering holy men, some of whom are only temporary visitors, while others who’ve carved out a permanent abode in this city of myth and mystery.
