Old Hindu pilgrim (Baba) in saffron color cloth on the Ghats of Varanasi (India)

He just took the ritual Holy Dip in the Ganges river.

From Wikipedia: In Sanatan Dharma (Hinduism), the deep saffron color is associated with sacrifice, religious abstinence, quest for light and salvation. Saffron or "Bhagwa" is the most sacred color for the Hindus and is often worn by Sanyasis who have left their home in search of the ultimate truth.
