Once the preliminary mantras are over, the priests perform aarti with the brass lamps with camphor. Once the goose bump-inducing aarti is over, there is more of Sattva or purity in the air.
• Ganga aarti timings
Once the time for a wonderful event arrives, getting a place to watch it could turn out to be an overwhelming reality. So, the way out is to plan in advance.
The aarti takes place daily at 6:30 PM post sundown in summer and 7:00 PM in winters for about 45 minutes. The venue is Dashashwamedh ghat, one of the holiest of all ghats in Varanasi. An announcement at 7:00 PM takes place to inform the attendees about the commencement of aarti.
