The ghat was flooded as i was in the midst of rainiy season. so couldn't talk much on this. But the Evening Ganga Ararti was mesmerizing.

It is one of the oldest ghat in varanasi near to the vishwanath temple. It is also the important Ghats among all other ghat. Ganga arati is being performed in this ghat. Enjoyed being there in the evening watching the arati.

This is believed to be main ghat of the city and hence there are numerous attractions surrounding this ghat. Do take a Ganga ride on the boats in Varanasi and do not forget to watch the evening aarti here.

The place is located on the bank of Ganga. The most important attractions of the place is the sandha Aarati. Very crowded place in the evening. More than ten people made the Aarati of Ganga Maiya at a time. The CDs and cassate of Ganga Aarati is available in the Ghat during Ganga Aarati.

This is again one of the famous ghats in Varanasi just like Assi ghat. Crowd and difficult to reach at this place because of narrow road and lanes as well as huge traffic jam in the morning office time and evening.

Dashashwamedh Ghat is one of the main ghat in Varanasi on the Ganges River. It is located near the temple of Kashi Vishwanath. The Ganga arati in the evening is a divine experience. This is the ghat situated next to the main one where the main Aarti is done. You must go for boat ride here.
