No one can deny the magic Ganga Arati.. people are coming to see the magic of traditional sound like "Har Har Mahadev Sambhu Kashi Vishwanath gange..".. Got gifted place.. Ramnagar and visits of all 80 ghats are awesome experience of my life. It was a great moment of my life. Beauty of all ghats are a gift of tradition..

I first visited here by boat on a sunset trip - I was amazed by the evening ceremony! So many people and so much colour and life. I felt blessed to have been able to see something so beautiful.

A nice arrangement to view famous pooja of Gangaji. Never seen such pooja any where so systematic with great dedication. Enire Varansi was there. A holy 40 minutes of my life.

Visit in the evenings to witness the Ganga Aarti and be mesmerized by it. The calmness takes away all the stress you have had before visiting the place.

I visited varanasi on 26-27 Mar 15. Witnessed ganga aarti from the river....and it was one of most fascinating moment of my life... The river, the air, the population, the chants, the boats all seemed to be doing and feeling one thing...the spirit of faith and devotion. A must visit for all, whn around varanasi
