And I don't think the Durga temple is what we looking for, this is a small shrine as Raina says.

And caper...you were translating Hindi?? WOW!! okay NOW I see it!

Glad flipping it helped...now just show me the bull! :lol:

Going to check our caps again... this one is from a little further in the sequence:

From wikimapia:

Quote
Temple of Jupitar, the biggest planet and Lord of Wealth (according to Hindu Myth). Only Hindus are allowed to enter into the shrine. Beutiful sand stone structure with more than beutiful curvings all over the temple. Anyone can take a picture of the temple from outside, on the road leading to Dasaswamedh Ghat. Thursday is the big worship day for Hindus at this temple.

We do need to remember that these might just be Varanasi atmosphere shots, and not a indicator that they go there though....

Nandi (the Bull) from Wikipedia:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nandi_%28bull%29
There's usually a statue of Nandi facing the shrine if the shrine is related to Shiva or Parvati.  Like in the picture caper linked above, Nandi is there again.  

I'm trying to read what it says below the shrine.

Well, the second pic of the shrine has our (did we decide they were?) braziers...so must be right.

And if it is near the Temple, it is on Dashashwamedh road ...which looks to be a busy busy streetmarket as well.

I did a little initial research on the subjects of milk farms in the Varanasi area and thus far, I'm not finding much on actual farms with locations, but I do have a few nuggets of information. Banaras Hindu University in Varanasi appears to be the local research facility for agriculture in Varanasi and they have opened their own milk farm in February 2011, but that's after when TAR was there, so I doubt that's where the racers were sent. I found some brief descriptions of studies they have done on the local dairy industry. Despite the large number of cows wandering the streets in Varanasi, it appears that the milk farms are just as likely to have water buffaloes for milk as cows. Goats are a possibility as well. I imagine all would eat hay. I also read that many of the milk farms are landless. I suppose that means that they are just in a small enclosed area and don't spend time in pastures. That could easily be anywhere inside the urban area of Varanasi. I'll keep looking for locations and addresses in case we get footage of the milk farms later on, but so far, I haven't found much initially.

The roadblock. Not only does it always come first these days, the first clue after arriving is a route info found at a tonga stand and it tells them to do the RB.

From a few references I've found, a tonga is apparently the local name for a horse drawn cart.

As for the roadblock, I guess that explains the various holy men we've seen that look similar but are several different people.

That's right about Tonga (or tanga as I would pronounce it).. and now I've a catchy Hindi song involving a tonga stuck in my head. 

Seems like the tasks will make a good use of Varanasi!  I would image one of the holymen would be on one of the ghats?

I think Ron/Christina might be going home.
Since I thin carrying Hay to milk farm is slower than the other task,and it seems Jen/Kisha is safe
in this leg and other people have gone,since other walls were done and the sun was setting? So I think it was quite late.

The hay to milk farm task might be slower for some teams, but for the Cowboys and the Trotters, I suspect it would be faster than the other task.

We've seen this before this season, some tasks would be faster for some teams and slower for other teams. It's an interesting twist on detour design, that is for sure.
