This Place is very famous for ganga arti. It's absolutely must visit at least once in a lifetime. I wish Modi govt takes up the initiative to clean and make this a international standards tourist place. Tip : take a boat and watch it from the front .. best view

This Ghat gives the real feel of Varanasi - the exuberance, the hustle & bustle, the crowds, the dirt and the commercial angle! We were here for 2 evenings for the daily aarti and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. This was one of the places on my bucket list for quite long and I am glad I ticked it off! Our son... More

The Evening Ganga Aarati is worth seeing. Starts from around 6-30 pm & lasts for 30-40 Minutes. You can watch fron the Ghat or From Boats. Watching from the boats is more spectacular. Must see if you visit Varanasi.

A ghat very near to the Kashi Vishwanath Temple, famous for its Ganga Aarti, is a must place for visit. Main attraction of the ghat is the evening aarti. People from all over the world come to see this auspicious event. Although Ganga Aarti is something not to be missed, still if some one wants to visit the place I... More

The sights are moving. Be respectful and sit back and learn. There is so much going on that your head will spin.

The ghat is famous for pilgrimage. Lots of shops and a small temple are there besides the ganges. In the evening Ganga aarti is conducted here.

This is one of the main Ghats where they cremate their dead. It's a densed Ghat with a lot of activity. Forbidden to take photos and film, but can be arranged if you get a permit.

one of the Ghat in Varanasi that is always busy with boat peddlers and travellers to have a glance of the Ganga. Always crowded at night during the Fire Puja
