The evening aarti (prayers) is what you go for, and this is short. The place is crowded with people, all those who come to pray to the Lord What follows afterwards is spectacular, with people floating flowers and candles in the river. This is the part that is beautiful, and this is what it is worth going for

Brhmakund situated right under the Har ki Pauri is where you should be taking a dip. Dont get stuck with the priests/ pandas by the ghat else they will fleece you. Have your silent darshan, take a dip if you must and retreat to the bridge from where you can observe the famed Ganga arti in the evening around 0600... More

it is a place which should not be rated per say , not because it is a religious place , but simply because it is a place where rituals take place , and will take place , immaterial of the ratings .

As a foreigner, this was one of the special events of our trip. Don't be shy about being here. We did go with a priest but it really isn't necessary... Just be respectful of what is happening for everyone else. Truly awesome to be here. Come before Sunset and stay until end of aarti... About an hour... Or cone around... More

Evening aarthi was picturesque though the guide didn't explain much of what was going on. Afterward we had to walk through stalls area barefoot because our guide did not want to bring our shoes. So enter from the midway point between the main aarthi place and the stalls, so that you can leave your shoes at that point and collect.... More

Just like any other place in India...it's extremely crowded. We had gone in the off-season but there was still an overload of people. The aarti is so nice to see, and the water is extremely cold. But you feel loaded with blessings after showering in the Ganga.

Aarti was very heart soothing but due to heavy crowd...I felt little bit uncomfortable.Never take your own vehicle if you planned to visit Har ki pauri , as NO ENTRY for private/commercial vehicles.Beware of Pick-pockets
