Picture of the Day - April 17

Scindia Ghat (also called Scindias and Shinde) borders Manikarnik, India to the north, with its Shiva temple lying partially submerged in the Ganges River as a result of excessive weight of the ghats' construction, about 150 years ago. Above the ghat, several of Kashi’s most influential shrines are located within the tight maze of alleys of Siddha Kshetra (Field of Fulfillment). According to mythology, Agni, the Hindu God of Fire was born here. Hindu devotees propitiate at this place to Vireshwara, the Lord of all heroes, for a son.  Taken from (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scindia_(Shinde)_Ghat).
