  • Ghats (Various locations)
    A tradition in India, the banks of the Ganges River are lined with steps called Ghats. These Ghats are intended to ease entrance into the water, where, according to the lore, submersion results in the cleansing of sin! While the water may be murky to visitors, watch as the locals jump for joy and celebrate their new beginning.


Angkor Ban
