There was Naroshankar Temple, a Hindu temple which was dedicated to Lord Shiva on the riverbank of the Godavari River. And many men dressed in white gathered on the edge of the water in front of the temple. Most of them wore a Gandhi cap.

Some kind of ceremony seemed to be taken place. Maybe it was a funeral. And they were purifying the body with the water of the holy river. Yet I couldn't find any crematories around here.
