    Dashashwamedh Ghat
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Meet your driver at your hotel in Varanasi and drive to Dasawamedha Ghat (Ghat is a flight of steps leading down to the river). It is located close to the Vishwanath Temple and it is most spectacular.  You will witness the traditional Aarti ceremony that is performed every evening at dusk. Hundreds of pilgrims, photographers, and tourists watch the magnificence of the Aarti ceremony as it unfolds.  Lamps are lit, fragrant smoke rises from incense sticks, and the chants of mantras can be heard.  Fire is offered to Lord Shiva and the Ganges River. As the Aarti comes to an end, the priests offer flowers, milk, and floating lamps to the Ganges. Pilgrims follow and soon the whole of the river is filled with lit lamps and aromatic flowers. The experience wonderfully highlights local culture and religion in an effort by the participants to find peace. At the end of the ceremony, your guide will take you back to your hotel in Varanasi.
