Exhibition about the “city of widows”

Vrindavan is also known as the “city of widows”: a purgatory on earth, a one-way journey to oblivion.

Those who take refuge in sacred places like Vrindavan, begin the long wait: for death, cremation and the scattering of ashes on the waters of sacred rivers, with the hope of ultimately reaching Moksh, final liberation from the wheel of reincarnation, and union with the creator.

The exhibition by Tamara Farnetani shows the Women in Vrindavan.
