Visited Dasaswamedh Ghat in first week of sep-14 with family. It was an awsome experience to witness the Ganga Aarti. It gives so much of peace and sprituality. People even sit on the boats to see the Ganga Aarti. It was a house full at the Ghat.

A strong sensation of people belief, you will get to know at this place. Ganga Aarti in evening is like festival everyday and witnessed by thousand people daily. Apart from religious offering which is spreaded over the place, the place is very good. A Must visit place if you have come to Varanasi.

The best part of this little tale of Banaras is the Ganga Arti. After taking an evening ride on the Ganges, your guide pauses the boat just in front of the Dasaswamedh Ghat. The sound of flawless chanting pours like heavenly drops in your ear. Just beware of the boat riders who will at last end up convincing you for... More

In all Varanasi has eighty ghats Harishchandra ghat is unique as it has its own Vishwanath temple very close to crematorium. Kedar ghat being perfect ghat to hire boat and to start your boat journey. Witnessing a Ganga Artee through boat on opposite side will give immense happiness, pleasure love and respect.

People from all around the country come here to view The Mahaarti in the evenings. One can come a little early and get a view of the aarti. Options to sit on boats and view are also there.
