I feel during night ceremony this is best place to visit nevertheless this is historical for Hindu pilgrim activity.I inspired with this place because of boating and swimming classes in river Ganga.

very crowded place but also amaazing. Please do yourself a favour and don' visit it on may/june. It's so hot that there's nobody from 9 to 16 more or less. The ganga aarti is also very crowded, soit's better to go one hour before it starts and take a good place.

This one is not to be missed.. You have two options you can reach the ghat early and then watch it from the stairs.. Another neat option is to take a boat from another ghat and then watch it from the boat.. I recommend the latter, (it would approximately cost about 75 per person if you take the boat from... More

Nothing have i ever seen more majestic than the aarti, the way it effects the five senses is simply mind blowing. If you are crossing UP, never miss to see it.

Loved the Ganga Aarti, specially from the boat Make sure you get a good spot at 6-30pm so that your boat is parked up front Very crowded and steep steps- adds to the charm though Might see cremations taking place through the day
