  • After visiting this place you will have a whole new view towards your life, I can assure you. You will feel the worth of life.
  • I love this place so much when I get time Then everytime I come here to visit bcz this is so beautiful place
  • Did the Asthi Visarjan in the opposite banks of this serene Ghat. May the souls rest in peace & attain salvation.
  • Need to create more well platforms and token system for cremation.
  • DON'T TAKE PHOTOS, IT'S DISRESPECTFUL! Cremation ghat. You can visit this place to see how bodies are burned. No fake guides, only locals, pretty calm place. Suggest to visit if you want to see the ritual for burning bodies.
