Some street art which I found whilst traveling in the city of Varanasi India. Varanasi was founded by the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva, around 5,000 years ago, thus making it one of the most important pilgrimage destinations in the country. It is one of the seven sacred cities of Hindus. It extended for about 5 km along the western bank of the sacred Ganges river.

Finished here? Then have a look at these.

The first two were probably done by INVADER. Watch “Exit from the gift shop”.
