HolidayIQ Reviewer Aditya Singh adds, “It is the main burning Ghat of the city where dead bodies are cremated through the day and night. The place is nice to visit - very peaceful and calm. You can easily reach there by boat or on foot. The place is near godowlia and Kashi Vishwanath temple. There are many temples on the Ghat itself. Beware of the thugs of Banaras here. You can find many Sadhus here. One could simply sit and spend hours in the calm and quiet environment of the place. The only thing is that the water here on the Ghat is polluted due to the burning of dead bodies and various wastes thrown by people here. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Nandielath sudhakaran adds, “The main idol of the sanctum sanctorum is a 4 foot long Shiv Ling in front of which one loses his human identity and feels the pulsing purusha inside- the feeling of being in one with the god in front. This oneness of Advaita is what I felt and couldn't add any prayer to this pure joy. On the eastern face of sanctum dwell I sShree Parvathy, the epitome of kindness and unfathomable love. Rahu Kethu pooja is done by the devotees during Rahukaalam under temple guidance for which tickets are issued. The temple entry is free and cameras are prohibited. It is best to wear a dhoti and shirt and go bare foot. The most striking feeling is the upwelling of joy as you stand before the Neelkanth and remain one with him. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Heena Gokal adds, “A temple is also erected where Baba used to sit in meditation and here devotees can touch the holy Feet of Baba to get His Divine Blessings. Along the walkway to the temple, men are sell rose bunches which can be purchased to offer at the Feet of Baba. Bundi prasad is distributed to all devotees before they enter the main temple where it becomes blessed. The temple is made of gold and it is believed to be one of the richest temples of India today. Security is tight and heavy to ensure smooth flow of people and order at all times. Stalls and shops selling souvenirs and religious items are found all around the temple. Consider yourself truly blessed if you get to go to Shirdi. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer NAGARAJAN C P says, “The deity here is Shiva, worshipped as Adi Kumbeswarar, and represented by the lingam. His consort Parvati is depicted as Mangalambigai Amman. It is believed that the town named Kumbakonam is derived from this temple based on a mythical pot (Kumbha) of the Hindu god Brahma that contained the seed of all living beings on earth. The Kumbha is believed to have been displaced by pralayam (dissolution of the universe) effected by the Hindu god Shiva's arrow and ultimately came to rest at the spot where the town of Kumbakonam now stands. The nectar is believed to have fallen in two places - the Mahamaham tank and the Potramarai tank.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Atreya Barua says, “Sangam is known as a holy place in Indian scriptures and once you arrive there, you can feel the same in the atmosphere. During the winters, one can also witness the migratory seagulls which are majestic. The serene boat ride through the Yamuna River to the meeting point with the Ganges will give you hope and peace. Just be careful not to indulge with some of the greedy pandits who will perform puja for you and demand unjustified amounts of money. Take an extra pair of clothes with you which you will need after your holy dip in the Ganga River. ” Read Full Review
