This one is one of the most colourful, interesting and sought after ghat. It is believed that this place got its named after King Dasharath (father of Lord Ram) performed famous Ashwamedha Yagna. If you are constrained for time or Ghats do not interest you, visit this one Ghat, it is one of the best. Evening Aarti, check with locals as its timings keep changing, is very good and nice. With vedic chants and hymns, Ganga at the backdrop, this place elevates you to greater spiritual level. It is well illuminated at night also and though you have to pass through old bazaar, we felt very safe, with a small child. No one bothered us for alms. So highly recommended and must do, when visiting Beneras.

At the Dasaswamedh Ghat are starting all the boatstrip in the morning and evening. It is very centraly located to the old town. Every day in the evening you can see the ceremony at this ghat, dont miss it!

If you are in Varanasi, you must walk along the ghats. Asi Ghat is the hippie ghat with lot of western eateries. Evening Aarti at Dashashwamedha is a treat for the eyes. You can skip the from the boat as you can see the same from the ghats too. Manikarnika ghat tells you the ultimate truth of life and at...
