Ganga Aarti at Triveni Ghat, Rishikesh
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Witness a traditional Hindu prayer at Ganga Aarti at Triveni Ghat, one of the area's most-visited ceremonies along the river. Set atop a ghat, or flight of riverfront steps, the prayer involves chanted verses along with bells and drums played by devotees. You can visit and watch as large numbers of leaf boats, filled with flowers and topped with oil candles, are set afloat on the Ganges. Alternatively, stop by one of the many nearby stalls to grab a lantern of your own and add it to the flotilla. Note that two other holy rivers, the Saraswathy and the Yamuna, join with the Ganges here.

A beautiful ghat with a mile long stretch along the river that offers a peaceful walk. The aarti with all the diyas and chanting of mantras is a beuatiful and surreal experience!
This is the best place to relax in Rishikesh. You feel very peaceful and can spend hours sitting here quietly. This is one of the few Ganga Ghat which are still not commercialized. Morning bath and evening Aarti are best attractions. Go with some time at hand, sit quietly and give yourself and your loved ones some quality time.
Really beautiful place. The river is cleaner here during the winter - and it's a really nice spot to take pictures. Take care not to slip and fall! The ground is very slippery!
Superb place. The ganges is totally different and so clean here than the one that is seen in Kolkata or in Patna or in Benares.
