Parmarth Niketan

The place to be for enjoying Ganga Aarti. Be there by 6 Pm or latest by 6:30 pm. The idol of Lord Shiva has been shifted into the Ashram premises after the 2013 floods. Had great time doing Aarti and taking part in singing with the pandits and sebayits.

Aarti by the Ganges

A clean and well-managed ghat where Aarti's are performed. It has good crowd control and offers the Aarti at the culmination of prayers to all. Visit for the spiritual experience.

Awesome place with peace

Peace, evening Ganga Aarti is must go place if you are in Rishikesh. Every time I visit Parmarth for Swami Ji's blessing, I wait for the evening Aarti. If Muni Ji personally visit for Aarti then it's really worth watching.

Very peaceful place

Parmarth Niketan is an ashram in the Swarg Ashram area. It is a very peaceful place where you can sit for hours doing nothing or watching people. I attended their evening aarti which is an event in itself, and then sat at the ashram for about 2 hours just soaking in the calmness around me. I again visited it early the next day, the students were collecting flowers and many devotees were taking dips at the Ganga Ghat. It was foggy and very green, a feast to the eyes. Lovely place, recommend a visit.

Come early to have a good aarti in the evening

Many people come here only to see the evening Ganga Arti so make sure you reach early and find a good place for yourself. It was a real divine experience sitting at the bank of Ganga and watching the arti, see for yourself and you'll come to know why Ganga is revered Maa Ganga.

Beautiful evening aarti at the Ganga

It was a beautiful experience to visit this place as we had gone just 3 days before dussehra so the grand aarti with lot of people was amazing. Don't have any idea whether it was because of this festivity or it was the Modi swach bharat campaign or something else but it was very clean environment the aarti was beautiful, the water of Ganga was clean I think there was a shortcut to go to the ashram from the hotel Ganga kinare that we were staying but you had to walk the Ram jhula or Lakshman jhula to go across since I am on a wheelchair had to go by car by a different route to that place and to my luck it was off season so got the car parking very close to the place and the helper pushed the wheelchair all the way to the actual place where aarti was taking place sat above the steps and enjoyed the whole aarti with bhajans, overall a beautiful experience.
