We were blessed to have the opportunity to view the Yamuna aarti from a boat in front of the ghat. After having witnessed some more "touristy" Ganga aarti during our trip, this was really heavy with devotional spirit! There was so much earnest devotion from locals to be witnessed, it was extremely inspirational. Sunset over the river and land of Vrindavan was spectacular and will never be forgotten.

I highly recommend this!

Jai ambe ambe ambe, jai yamune yamune !!

The chants accompanied by drums and symbols creates such an environment that you are sure to receive goosebumps. My suggestion would be to go to Kesi Ghat at around 5 pm and then hire a boat to cross over to the other bank of Yamuna and then enjoy the evening Aarti from across the river. It is blissful !!

reached here in morning after banke bihariji darshan. took a boat ride in 40rs. though the surroundings are not clean but this ghat and the temples and buildings here are extremely old. now a very important thing i noticed. when seeing the temple look carefully the downside of the temples, buildings and ghat, that is the basement. catually some storeys of the buildings are now submerged in sand and other construction works and road work, being carried out few years back. otherwise it used to be a long beach thousands of years back.

Go there before sunset to attend the aarti ceremony. The way to the ghat is through a market and small alleys leading to the Yamuna river. Take your time and visit the different Krishna temples on the way. As foreigners, the aarti ceremony was very interesting. As other people said, beware of monkeys, one of them stole my $1 reading glasses.
We were there in August so there was lots of water in the river.

I think it was more to do with the season. But after taking a bumpy car ride through rustic town to reach this place we were disappointed to find dry banks. It was dark already so did not venture out of the car. But the pics suggest that in season it will be a good spiritual place. May be better luck next time.
