There was a place called Ramkund on the riverbank of the Godavari river. It was a bathing ghat and one of the holiest places for Hindu. Many Hindu pilgrims came to bathe here.

The women in the photo were also pilgrims. Those who wore a saree stood on the edge of the water and were dipping the water. They were just purifying. Although most of male pilgrims soaked all over, it seemed to be uncommon for women.
