Triveni Ghat is in old Rishikesh at the west bank of Ganga river right to the south of where the Chandrabhaga river joins it. Every evening at sunset (time varies by season), a spectacular prayer performance for Aarti happens at this Ghat. 16 priests stand in a row at a pedestal right by the river and hold up large lamps lit with flames. As chanting and songs are played, the priests move the lamps in all four directions as a offering to the river. The synchronisation is nearly perfect and it is goose-bump inducing to see giant patterns of fire dancing in the wind. You should reach at least 30 minutes before the Aarti happens so that you get ring-side seats. This would mean reaching Triveni Ghat at 6:30 pm during summers and at 5:30 pm during winters.
मैंने 05 सितंबर, 2019 को ऋषिकेश से अपनी यात्रा , शाम के समय त्रिवेणी घाट पर गंगा आरती के साथ शुरू की। गंगा ऋषिकेश से ही मैदानी क्षेत्र में प्रवेश करती है। ऋषिकेश पूरे विश्व में योग की राजधानी के रूप में विख्यात है।
