Photographer's Note

All along the bank of river Ganges, you can see several ghats and a mixture of different architecture styles. That is happening because every region of India (and Nepal) has its own ghat, which is built following every region's architecture style. At some point what cathes the visitor's attention is a mosque (Alagmir Mosque)that seems "out of frame". It was built in the site of a large Vishnu temple by Mungal Emperor Aurangzeb, who destroyed and looted many Hindu temples. Even today a mosque right beside the holy river of hinduists (and also bhuddists) causes many problems, and that's why the presence of the police in this "neighborhood" is "tenacious"
