As per the customs , if a person dies in Kashi , he attains Moksha (Salvation) Hence Many people get cremated in these ghats.I visited Varanasi on Janauary ,During the Winter season which would be the Ideal Season, After we had the darshan at the Temple , we took a walk on the ghats starting from Dashashwamedh ghats till Assi Ghats, I could see various things happening around the Ghats.
