Dashashwamedh Ghat Rd, Bangali Tola, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh 221001, India
In the evening, we took a boat ride to the other side of Ganga from Dr. Rajendra Prasad Ghat. The view of endless ghats, from amidst the river is breathtaking. It looks like a painters colour palette. I stepped out on the bank of the river, took a handful of 'Gangajal' and sprinkled it over my head. I don't know if a handful of water can wash ones sins, but the belief that it shall cleanse your soul, surely fills one's throat. After this we rode across the length of the river to see all the ghats. Some had people leaving the wish 'deep' for a good life and on the contrary some had cremation ceremony going on. The cycle of life could be seen meters away!

Lucknow or the City of Nawabs sitting on the banks of the Gomti river, is regarded as North India’s cultural capital. Uttar Pradesh’s capital, Lucknow is replete with historical elements dating back to the colonial era that are known over the world for their Awadhi-style architecture. But Lucknow’s ethos lies in its delectable cuisine and its unique Chikankaari (shadow-work embroidery) garments that are must-buys if you are in the city. Lucknow is also known for its sweeping gardens and pure Kathak dance-forms that are showcased in numerous events held across the city. The city is also thriving with a lovely Urdu poetry scene. The ginormous tomb complex of Bara Imambara is home to a stunning labyrinth and neighboured by the equally popular mausoleum of Chhota Imambara, the Husainabad clock tower and a fantastic art gallery. And while in Lucknow, feast on its delightful assortment of Awadhi and Mughlai food that comprises of everything from kebabs to the makhan malai (a saffron-flavoured local ice-cream).


About Dashashwamegh ghat

I was there in Dashashwamegh ghat and I was already feeling the spirituality in the air.Dashashwamedh Ghat is the main ghat in Varanasi on the Ganga River. It is located close to Vishwanath Temple and is probably the most spectacular ghat. Two Hindu legends are associated with it: According to one, Lord Brahma created it to welcome Lord Shiva. According to another legend, Lord Brahma sacrificed ten horses during Dasa-Ashwamedha yajna performed here.From there I took boat which was only 50 rupees per person and it will take you till Harish chandra ghat.
