Triveni Ghat, Rishikesh

4.5
#1 of 15 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.

  • It's really very cold water. We (me and my family 👪) visited Triveni Ghat may be 4-5 years ago when i was very young. Me and my father take a bath there and the water was too cold and the flowing with high speed my father hold my hand all the time because of high speed flow. That was a very great memory of my life. I will came back when i got some time and bath there again.
  • I've been here for 4 hours with my bro for his exam. We heard more about this place so decided to visit once. Before exam we enjoyed a lot here. Need attention only on cleaning here. One thing to be kept in mind that everything is very costly here.
  • The sunrise from Triveni ghat is really mesmerizing. It's neat and clean with well built ghat area. People come here for morning walks and get an amazing view of the forest range opposite the ghat.
  • It's a nice enough place. You can walk along the ghat. But there's hardly any water in the river just off the ghat. The aarti however is a delightful and elaborate event, definitely worth watching.
  • It's awesome to spend an evening at this that chanting prayers to mighty Ganga river. No words to explain it's amazing spiritual experience. It's a must visit place.
