Travel photo of the day
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
This photo was taken just after dawn as a daughter assists her mother with lighting the flame of their prayers before sending it to the river. They are at peace and alone, surrounded by other early morning devotees of all ages.
In the background you can glimpse the hundreds of boats and thousands of tents of the the millions that have come to this unique event.
