It was already time for Aarti so we decided to hurry and catch the Aarti if possible near Ram Zula which was comparatively near. We choose to walk as that's the best way to explore and get feel of city. It was almost 30 mins walk from Laxman Zula to Ram Zula passing through some dark deserted allies. Only few foreigners we could see passing by , otherwise it was all deserted road for long. After asking lot of directions we reached and crossed the Ram Zula. The Aarti was already started, we joined the crowd. It was small group of 5 young pandits people performing Aarati in skilled and elegant way , chanting mantras in chorus, moving Aarati round and round in beautiful sync. Though it was small scale compared to what I have heard of Varanasi and Haridwar it was still delightful to witness very first time.
Do not miss to walk again on Laxman Zula in the night, it's more peaceful with no crowd.
Recently I heard the hanging bridge 'Laxman Zula' is closed for people after 90 years. It's sad though I am glad I could visit it before and have a beautiful memory of it.
