Book Description
The sacred city of Banaras on the River Ganges is one of the oldest living cities in the world - as old as Jerusalem, Athens and Peking. It is the place where Shiva, the lord of all, is said to have made his permanent home since the dawn of creation. There are few cities in India as traditionally Hindu and as symbolic of the whole of Hindu culture as Banaras. In this eloquent, finely observed study, Diana cEck shows how the city over the centuries has become a lens through which the Hindu vision of the world is precisely focused.
