Beautiful place for anyone who wants to soak into the authentic culture of India! This place has upheld a tradition hundreds of years old. People are respectful, helpful and it is always easy to find a spot to take pictures.

The priests perform the arti with great devotion, skill and enthusiasm. Day and day out, their love for it does not wane. It is a feast for the eyes!

Reach there early, before the crowds, and you can take some shots of the preparations for the grand arti. You can also buy diyas to immerse in the Ganga and offer your prayers, if you like that type of a thing.

The Ganga is really peaceful here. Even just sitting by the Ganga for a few minutes brings immense healing to the mind.
