A Place from the History Books of India. Dasaswamedh Ghat is the main ghat of Varanasi , the holy city of India. And the most amazing thing about this Ghat is the evening "Aarti". Its probably the best thing about Varanasi. Reach there by time , take a boat , and watch the Aarti from the boat. It gets picturesque... More

It is worth attending and without this Varanasi tour is useless.Aarti is worth viewing from both religious as well as aesthetic purpose.

They call it the main Ghat. They have a great fire show every night at 7 pm. Many of the river boats also leave from this location.

you will see the famous ganga aarthi in this ghat which starts around 6:30pm in the evening and carry on for 45 mins ... there are mainly three types of these aarthis .. in which different types of the aarthi lamps made out of brass will be used .... you will love the scene in that time....

the main ghat where boats depart from. Prepare for a lot of hassle from the locals! Say politely "no" if you don't want their services, and keep saying so. They're persistent.

Must visit place to view the majestic Ganga Aarti in the evenings. Though the place may get crowded, but worth the visit.

The beautiful Sandhya Aarti is worth mentioning. Its a real pleasure to the eyes . The priests dancing together, in a coherent rhythm each time with different arts is really a pleasure to the eyes
