Holy Varanasi (India). 'Everyone in Varanasi seems to be dying or praying or hustling or cremating someone or swimming or laundering or washing buffaloes in the city’s sewage-saturated Ganges. The goddess river will clean away your sins and help you escape from that tedious life-and-death cycle.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/india/uttar-pradesh/varanasi
