Triveni Ghat, a junction of three holy important Rivers the Ganges, the Yamuna and the Saraswathy, is a most revered sacred bathing spot in Rishikesh and is located on the banks of Ganges River. It's of perception that those that take a dip in Triveni Ghat will have release, a reduction from all sins carried out; the water right here has the ability to purify them. In the early morning at sunrise they offer milk to the river and happily feed the fish in the Ghat. A powerful view of lamps floated in the river as a part of aarti ceremony is enjoyable to eyes after the sunset. Triveni Ghat holds a big place in the Hindu Mythology and Puranas and likewise finds a point out in the Hindu epics Ramayana and Mahabharata. It's believed that Lord Krishna visited this holy spot when he was harm by an arrow shot by Jara who is a hunter. The famous temples like Gita Mandir and Lakshminarayan temple are located on the banks of Triveni Ghat.
