Tulsi Ghat is not just another ghat of Varanasi but one of the important tourist places. The cultural legacy of Tulsi Ghat speaks volumes about its spiritual stature. It is believed to be the place where the medieval saint Tulsi Das composed the Awadhi version of the holy epic poem Ramcharitmanas.

Tulsi Ghat in Varanasi is named after Tulsidas who lived here while he wrote the Ramcharitmanas. It is one of the ghats at Varanasi.

It was earlier known as 'Lolark Ghat' and It was in the year 1941, Tulsi Ghat was cemented by the Birlas.

It is said that a sacred bath at Lolark Kund gets rid of leprosy and skin diseases. Tulsi Ghat is associated with a number of important activities such as Lolark Sasthi at Lolark Kund.

Further, Tulsi Ghat is an office base of Sankat Mochan Foundation, a non governmental organization working to clean the river Ganga. But so far it has not been done.

We had been to Tulasi Ghat and also had a sacred bath at Lolark Kund. We have to get down a number of steps to reach the Kund but we are relieved of our strain once we take a dip here.

Tulsi Ghat is one of the important Ghats of Varanasi. This Ghat is named after great poet Tulsidas- writer of the great Indian epic, Ramcharitmanas. According to mythology, when Tulsi's manuscript fell into the River Ganga, it did not sink and kept floating instead.

There is a temple of Lord Rama at Tulsi Ghat. The house in which Tulsidas died has been preserved. His samadhi, wooden clogs, pillow and the idol of Hanuman, which Tulsi worshipped, are kept here.

In the year 1941, Tulsi Ghat was properly constructed by industrialist B.D. Birla. At this Ghat, bath is taken to be blessed with sons and their long life. Also sacred bath is taken to get rid of leprosy. Tulsi Ghat is also a center of cultural activities. It is near Asi Ghat where lot of foreign tourists stay, eat, drink, and enjoy their Varanasi Stay.

This Ganga ghat at Varanasi is named after the great Hindu Saint Sh. Tulsi Das ji who is remembered most as the creater writer of Ramcharitmanas. Tulsi Das ji wrote this great epic while staying at this ghat. Mostly very few people visit this ghat.

Tulsi Ghat has been named in memory of the great Hindu Saint Sant Tulsidas, the author of Ramcharitmanas. We had the opportunity of visiting this sacred Ghat, while hiring a Boat to watch the most famous event of Varanasi, the Sandhya Aarti (Evening Aarti) in Dasaswamedh Ghat.

The ghat has been named after sant Tulsi Das who compiled Ramcharitramanas for us while living here .In that sense this is such a legendary place and abounds with many big and small temples here .
The Birlas in 1941 made the ghat pucca with bricks ...so pilgrims can easily reach from the Ganges .

This is one of the sacred ghats of Varanasi, as it named after poet-saint Tulsidas and he lived there while he wrote Ramcharitmanas (Ramcharitmanas is the translation of Sanskrit epic, Ramayana into the accessible version in vernacular ). It is believed that he built this ghat by the 16th century and also established a monastery, a Hanuman Temple and an Akhara, just above the Ghat. Every year, during Ramlila in the season of Ashwin (September – October) Ram’s fascinating story is enacted over many nights. During Ramlila, Tulsi Ghat is converted to one of the stage areas used for the performances.

Its one of those ghats where the steps straight away lead to water and is relatively cleaner.
Tulsidas is considered to have written Ramayan here. It's two ghats walk from Assi Ghat. Do walk.

This Ghat is named after great poet Tulsidas- writer of the great Indian epic, Ramcharitmanas. As per Hindu Mythology, when Tulsi's manuscript fell into the River Ganga, it did not sink and kept floating instead.

I would be partial in stating that Dasaswamedh still remains the Number 1 Ghat with maximum footfall but honestly speaking Tulsi Ghat is also worth visiting for the quaint surroundings and to avail peace of mind.

There is also a temple of Lord Rama at Tulsi Ghat. The house in which Tulsidas died has been preserved. His Samadhi, wooden clogs, pillow and the idol of Hanuman, which Tulsi worshipped, are also kept here.
