Manikarnika Ghat

According to legendary tales, the Manikarnika Kund is even older than the River Ganges and it was created by Lord Vishnu as a symbol of the creation of the Universe. The Manikarnika Ghat was however made by Lord Shiva and is said to be a samsham or cremation ground for the Hindus completely. As it is people say that death in Kashi leads to Moksha and thus people come here to cremate their loved ones and pray for their souuls to attain moksha. This is second in importance to the Dashashwamedha Ghat and is also one of the Pancha Sthans for holy Hindu worship.

काशी विश्वनाथ मंदिर शैव और शक्ति दोनो हिन्दू संप्रदायों में अतिविशिष्ट महत्व रखता है। आपको जानकर आश्चर्य होगा कि केवल तीन ही मंदिर ऐसे हैं जो ज्योतिर्लिंग होने के साथ साथ शक्तिपीठ भी हैं। श्रीमल्लिकार्जुन ज्योतिर्लिंग होने के साथ साथ यह शक्तिपीठ भी है। काशी विश्वनाथ मंदिर के पास गंगा के किनारे मणिकर्णिका घाट को शक्तिपीठ माना जाता है, जो शक्ति संप्रदाय के लिए पूजनीय स्थान है।
અમે આગળ વધ્યા અને વિશાળ પટ પર પ્રગટી રહેલી અનેક ચિતાઓ ધરાવતા આ ઘાટ પર પહોંચ્યા. કોવિડ 19 નો બીજો વેવ હજુ શરુ નહોતો થયો તેમ છતાં માસ્ક પહેરવાનો નિયમ બરાબર પાળી રહ્યા હતા. સ્થાનિકોના કહ્યા પ્રમાણે મણિકર્ણિકા ઘાટ એટલો પવિત્ર છે કે આસપાસના 100-200 કિમી દૂરના વિસ્તારોમાંથી પણ ઘણા મૃતદેહને ખાસ મણિકર્ણિકા ઘાટે અગ્નિદાહ માટે લાવવામાં આવે છે.
