The Ghats of Varanasi (India).­

The Ghats are stone steps going from the houses down to the Ganges river, allowing people to easily bathe and access river boats.­

During monsoon (rainy season), the water level of the river is several meters higher, reacing the base of the buildings that are along the Ghats.­
