Dasaswamedh Ghat

The most important and busiest of all ghats, the Dasaswamedh Ghat is also the oldest of all. The Kashi Viswanathar Temple is on the banks of this ghat and thus is the most popular with locals as well tourists. The main attraction is the evning aarti here and also the sight of people busy in their daily activities and religious rituals such as worships, cremations and others.

The Aarti at Dashashwamedh Ghat is famous. It usually starts by 6-6:30 pm and lasts for an hour. I advice to come half an hour early to get the best view of the Aarti. After the Aarti, people start closing shops and places. We visited Kashi Vishwanath temple which is usually less busy at night. It is at the Dashashwamedh Ghat. All the Ghats are connected and you can easily walk along the Ghats to reach from one point to another.

3. The Grand Ganga AartiEven though you hate being in crowds, you will definitely enjoy this grand Aarti, perfectly synchronized chanting of mantras and the rituals, colourful lights all around, ocean of people on the ghats as well as on the boats parked in the river chanting the aarti and mantras synchronously with the priests, is clearly a sight to behold!Try to get yourself a seat closer to the aarti so that you can enjoy the whole process peacefully as this runs for a while.
Aarthi at the Ganga is one of the most Eye Catching ritual , its Must do ,by most of the people who visit Varanasi.
