about shamshan and the circle of life

Though it isn't a very run of the mill tourist attraction, the Shamshan at Jamnagar sees tourists driving in droves for a visit. The serenity of this 112-year-old Hindu crematorium has been luring tourists from long, and rightly so.

It was taken over and renovated by G. H. Thakker in the year 1940, as a result of which, it's become quite an appealing piece of architecture. The mural depictions on the walls largely owe to Hindu epics and make for some interesting time. Another highlight of the place is the depiction of the varying stages of life through the Circle of Life.
