Which city is associated with cremated bodies lying on the banks of a river?

Hyderabad
Kanpur
Varanasi

Hindus believe that bathing in the Ganges remits sins and that dying in Varanasi ensures release of a person's soul from the cycle of its trans­mi­gra­tions. Those who are lucky enough to die in Varanasi, are cremated on the banks of the Ganges, and are granted instant sal­va­tion. Thus, many Hindus arrive here for dying.
