As usual i woke up at 4 and made it to Janki Ghat by 6 with my camera man. Both Janki and Anandmayi ghats are very small in size and is difficult to be recognized. The only mark of identification for Janki ghat is it's colourful stairs while the other has none. Janki ghat is said to be a bathing ghat. Both the ghats are very unpopular in performing any religious or cultural activities.
Janki means daughter of king Janak, i.e., Goddess Sita (of Ramayana). In 1870 AD, Maharani Kunwar of Sursand (Bihar) constructed this ghat. Earlier Janki Ghat was also known as Nagamber Ghat.
Also, earlier Anandmmayi Ghat was also known as Imalia Ghat. In 1944, Ma Anandmayi bought that area from the British and made it cemented in order to run an ashram (or organization) which is involved in performing a number of religious activities. Since this ghat was initiated by Ma Anandmayi so is the name of this ghat.
