Kedar Ghat, Varanasi

4.0
Take the steps to the holy river of Ganga and wash away your sins in its waters at Kedar Ghat. The place is held as divine and holy for people seeking salvation or Moksha. The steps could be very steep for some and it is advisable to be extra careful while climbing them. Buy the pooja thalis and diyas, symbolical offerings and candle lamps, to be lit and floated on the river, as the ancient practice requests. Visit the popular sweet shops around the Ghat that serve fresh and pre milk-sweets. Try the idli wala, a South Indian dish, which is the local favorite.

  • Kedar Ghat is good that this place is convenient to bathe in the Ganges. Here the descent to water on sand instead of the stairs. Almost unpopulated, though in the morning here Grand washing. In the little red church services are held periodically, which gives a special flavor when the plunge in the river. To the left of Red this small church up the stairs Cafe "Everest". Very tasty Momo with panirom! Truckee Lam-soda.
