Enjoy the ganga Aarti

Perhaps one of the most famous ghats. Just enjoy the evening Arti on the banks of hloy river & feel blessed to be in Varansai.

Every Ghat in Benaras has its own character- and so are its people. The best way to enjoy is to sit on the stairs and enjoy the activities. The evening 'Aarati' is a must watch

we watched Ganga Aarathi in the evening, we are thrilled this ghat is the main ghat to Ganga river and very near to Shri Kasi viswanath ji temple.

It is said that this is where Lord Brahma performed 10 Aswamedha Yajgyaas and hence the name. This is also the place where the main Ganga Aarati takes place. This is also the ghat closest to the Kashi Vishwanath Temple and hence thronged by thousands of people each day. Crowded, dirty and chaotic is the way to describe the place... More

This is perhaps the best ghat of Varanasi in respect of cleanliness, maintenance & crowd density. Two Sandhyaratis are organised here each day in the evening by two different Byabsayee Samitis.

The location of the regular GANGA Aarti which is a stunning sight. One of the fw ghats in the Assi Ghat which is maintained in a clean and tidy manner.

The evening Ganga aarati is a treat to watch, but beware of touts who charge for the seating. Best way is to hire a boat and watch from out in the river.

This is the place where Brahma performed 10 Ashwamedh Yagna. The Ganga aarti is worth seeing. The Ganga Mata Mandir is also there

The evening pooja can be viewed from here with excellent view from the temple between Dr Rajendraprasad and Dashashswamed. Viewing from the boat maybe nice, but if you are taking photos, it will be pretty unstable.
