Kedar Ghat, Varanasi
(4.1/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see Kedar Ghat and other attractions that appeal to you using our Varanasi vacation route planner.

  • Float by boat along the coast, you can get off at Kedar ghate and continue the journey deep into the ancient city streets la′irintam or continue the walk along the river. In any case, this is one of the most notable Ghat in Varanasi.
