Triveni Ghat, Rishikesh

4.5
#1 of 17 in Historic Sites in Rishikesh
Witness a traditional Hindu prayer 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. With our online itinerary creator, Rishikesh attractions like Triveni Ghat can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Very well organised and spectacular arati performed at Triveni Ghat. Atmosphere was great with the devotional songs and spontaneous dance.  more »
  • I never miss the Ganga aarti here in Rishikesh. Less touristy, less crowded and you’ll be able to find a seat by the steps and watch the whole procession beautifully.  more »
  • This sunset ceremony blessing the Ganga in front of this stunning temple was a pleasure to attend. It was quite beautiful and fun to watch from the bridge as well as up close.  more »

  • I've visited this amazing place n number of times, however it seems like a new place to me in every visit. It is always crowded but it will provide you, your part of calming atmosphere. Love this place
  • Ghat is maintained properly. Good to see proper concrete pathways and benches around. Although people are in habit of making it dirty.
  • A must go for all who want to wash away in holy river ganga. Pure , cold water and very less crowded. The flow is too fast and chains/ safety measures are too less, so one has to be really cautious while taking a dip.
  • Wonderful place. Ground level is also not so deep so you can enjoy holy bath here. Evening aarti is center of attraction.
  • The most lovely and serene place in rishikesh, prayers in evening is wonderful. Worth spending the early morning time to have a yogic experience.
