“For food, arti(prayer with lights) & experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

It takes 10mins to walk from the main Dasaswamedh ghat to reach Kedar ghat. Then climbing the stairs could give one a shock but I reckon, to climb to see the other side of Kedar ghat. There is a temple of Shiva & arti in the evening which is good. The best part for me, going to Kedar ghat was to relish the fresh delicious food from the Kedar coffee house. It is a small family run joint offering authentic south indian delicacies on demand & very cheap. I loved all the food items there & would highy recommend. Besides the food, temple & arti, the narrow alleyways that comes after the stairs is a sight to visit. Kedar ghat is full of life in the evening with a plethora of people visiting, crowding & lighting lamps in the river.

“Boats for aarti from here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

From here we can hire boats to show all ghats and finally stop near dasawmedh ghat where ganga aarti takes place in the night, its must see from boat only as aarti is given to river ganga if we are on the boat on ganga we can see it straight from the front view

“Atmospheric Ganges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

Try and get to this place at sunset when Puja ceremonies take place riverside. Gets quite crowde, so get / ghat there early . Rather than get close, choose the high-ground of upper steps
