Harishchandra Ghat is one of the Burning Ghats of Varanasi, where the dead are cremated day and night on the bank of the Ganges river.

The corpse of the deceased is wrapped in a shroud. You can see the head (in the yellow shroud).

The corpse is burned on a funeral pyre, until only ashes remain. Then, the ashes are thrown in the Ganges river. The process takes about 3 hours.

Photo taken in Varanasi - also known as Benares (India).
