Inde, défilé des "saddhus" ou "d'hommes-saints" à Varanasi ou Bénares

The parade of "saddhus", this date actually corresponds to a royal bath, one of the most favorable dates to purify themselves in the Ganges in Haridwar, dates carefully determined by astrological calculations. These are the royal baths during large gatherings of sadhus (which means "holy men") that will scroll in huge processions body covered with ash across the city to the ghats for the sacred bath.
