“Heart of Varanasi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

You have it all here. This place concentrates everything, boats to get into the Ganges, Vishwanath temple, daily poojas... Nice place to sit and enjoy.

“Water at the ghats”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

If you are planning a trip to Benares, you can visit the Kashi Viswanath temple. Though it very crowded, owing to Shravan month, getting a darshan is not very difficult. Just don't go with your own vehicle. And the ghats are a disappointment, with ganga swelling and water righht till the edge. You can't see the ganga arti and can't take a boat ride in the holi ganga.

“Good staff, and hotel”

The staff was helpful and the hotel was clean and comfortable. The location is pretty good too, near the Assi Gath. Everyone was friendly and the AC was great. Good view, and the tours was wort every penny.

“Spiritual, Lively and spectacular Ganga Aarti!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

One of the main Ghat in Varanasi on the Ganges River. Spiritual and lively Ganga aarti takes place everyday at this Ghat between 7 and 8 pm. Aarti is performed to worship fire, wherein a dedication is made to Lord shiva, River Ganges, Sun, Fire & the whole Universe. Thousand of people and many foreigners attend this aarti daily. You can also take a boat ride from Assi ghat to Raj Ghat and while coming back you can watch the aarti by sitting in the boat. You will definitely feel spiritually relaxed after attending this aarti.

“Nothing can be more spiritual than watching Ganga Arti on Dasaswamedh Ghat !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

This Ghat is very close to Kashi Vishwanath temple and have a wonderful view around. This place is always crowded irrespective day time. Daily evening you have a Ganga Arti which is the most lovely attraction of this place and Arti is something not be missed. However you need to be aware of local pujari’s ( Panda’s) how can play with your emotion and try to get more n more from your pocket. This place is very close to market which increases its value.
