Ganga Aarti at Triveni Ghat, Rishikesh

(4.4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Rishikesh trip builder to add Ganga Aarti at Triveni Ghat and other attractions to your Rishikesh vacation plans.

  • Its very peaceful and harmony place. You can just sit bank of Ganga and see the water flowing and there is forest cross river, sometimes you can see the elephant drinking water.  more »
  • I went there twice. the nightly ceremony by young monks with music and fire is irresistible. I launched my flower bowl onto the Ganges with a prayer and knowing Oneness.  more »
  • We were so impressed with the early morning Aarti - peaceful, serene, personal & respectful!! That we rose before dawn to walk the Ghats again early in the morning to watch this beautiful ceremony for...  more »

  • If you are looking for an intimate family like experience for Ganga aarti, this is it. Clean ghat, welcoming people and the musicians performing the bhajans are top of the line. Vocalist and tabla player are mesmerizing.
  • I have been to this place in the evening and the feel of this place is very religious. I didn't got wet but there is place for women to change after ganga snan. I think things can be managed more. Aarti at this ghat is marvellous. I Enjoy Aarti everytime I visit.
  • This is the place which established the Rishikesh. If you are religious then visting this place will always be a enchanting experience for you. Amongst all the ghats in India this seems cleanest and river water is always pure and clean throughout the year(except for 2 months of rainy season). This place is usually crowded, but visiting here in off timings i.e. after 10 PM is very relaxing and you can hear the sound of Ganga ji.
  • Ganga Aarti is organised at Triveni Ghat every evening. Several devotees had gathered to worship Mother Ganga.
  • if you guys are looking for ghats in risikesh with less crowd to be in peace than nothing gonna better than this so pure situated on banks of river ganga . feet touching water is moving great experience
