Heights of Sprituality
Ghats are a must visit attraction in banaras. Kashivishwanath darshan and ganga aarti was a divine experience. Best time to visit ghats is early morning (sunrise) or sunset.
Holy place on the bank of River Ganga
It's being pleasure to get all expense paid trip to Varanasi by HolidayIQ and Micromax.
I also got a free gift a very high end Dual V5 Max Mobile from Micromax to take the pictures of Varanasi.
You can see and enjoy my trip pictures in HolidayIQ blog and to Micromax India facebook Page.
Dashashwamedh Ghat is the main ghat in Varanasi. According to scriptures this ghat was made by brahma to welcome lord Shiva on the bank of the ganga river.
According Indus river ganga is the holiest river and to offer prayers after taking Bath into the river, one gets rid of his or her bad karma. So people across all over the world, come here do Bath in the Ganga, ganga aarti, prayers for forefathers peaceful souls and offer puja. Kashi Vishwanath Temple hardly one km from the ghat. So devotees directly come over here.
This is the center point of entire Ghats.
If you walk around you will get Rana ghat, Tulsi Ghat, Rajendra Ghat, Harishchandra ghat so more. As you can see beautiful buildings, temples, and can ride on a boat.
Early morning boat ride is a great experience. You can cover half of entire Ghats on boat. My advice to you do take boat and enjoy. And boat man will tell you the entire history about all Ghats.
So enjoy the one of oldest living city in the world.
I am sure you will get peaceful mind and relief from tension because of the holiness. Thus the reason most of kings of olden days came and they also built temples and residential palaces over there and spend time and got peace.
