There's not much to say about the Ghat. It's like most of the other riverside bathing sites. But walk 50 to 100 meters into the alleys, and you'll discover Lahiri Mahasya's family home. He was the levitating disciple of Babaji, and paramguru to Swami Yogananda. Photos, statues, quotes and quiet meditation space are all provided inside the private home.

Varanasi, its Ghats and Mother Ganga, the holy river of the Holy city, cannot be described in words. Although you are not a religious person, it is almost impossible not to get... More

It was a wonderful experience to see the worship ceremony at sunset. The Ghat (forgot the name may be dameshar) offers a splendid view of the River front.

We went to the waterfront by bicycle rickshaw which costs about 100 rupees from our hotel. It is through the town to the waterfront, and along the way you use all your senses and just try and take it all in. One of the most interesting things that you have to do while you are in the oldest religious city... More

what can one say? The Ganges may not look the most inviting river, but the whole atmosphere of The Ghats, the river and the general atmosphere is without compare as a holy city.
