  • Varanasi is a holy city in India. It keeps the tourists curious about its religious charm, splendid ghats and rich culture. Talking about its Ghats, they leave no visitor disappointed. The entire city is brimming with gorgeous ghats which cater a spiritual and beautiful ambience. If you think that ghat is just a shore of a river then you are wrong. These ghats are endowed with abundance of spirituality and thrill. If you don’t believe, go ahead and visit them. You can easily find hotel Varanasi for your cosy stay. Here, let us go through three of the numerous ghats of this land. This is the popular ghat frequently visited for recreation and during the times of festivals. You know around 300 people visit Assi Ghat every single hour in the mornings on regular days. And talking about the festivals around twenty five hundred people visit per hour. Not just the locals but people from different areas of country and even abroad visit the ghat. Assi ghat houses about twenty-two thousand five hundred people at once during the times of festivals such as Shivratri. It has been believed that goddess Durga after slaying the demon Shumbha-Nishumbha threw her sword. The spot wherein sword was fallen outcome in flowing of huge stream called ASIRiver. The mergence spot of river Ganga and ASI is called Assi ghat. Chet Singh Ghat is a historical encouraged Ghat. The spot has seen a battle between troops of Warren Hastings and Chet Singh in the year 1781. The fort and Ghat were snatched from British by Maharaja Prabhu Narayan Singh in the second half of 19th century. Originally the Ghat was called Khirki Ghat. Now it possesses four parts called Cheta Singh Ghat, Nirvani Ghat, Niranjani Ghat and Shivala Ghat. The ghat has three Shiva temples. People visit this ghat in a huge number and the rush is magnificent during the times of festivals. You can find a great cheerfulness in the times of evenings at this spot. Even in the lot of noises, you can feel a distinct type of calm and tranquillity. Tripura Bhairavi Ghat is a spiritual spot for South Indian pilgrims specifically for the ones coming from Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. It has taken its name from Tripura Bhairavi which was the fifth great cosmic power of the Hindu pantheon. His shrine is situated on this Ghat. Varanasi is one of the fabulous city for hinduism. Moreover the shrine of Varahi, who is one of nine mother-goddesses, is also mapped here. Thus, these were the three ghats of the city, if you want to taste the entire number of ghats; you have to visit this spiritual land. You won’t just get to know so much about the culture and Hinduism but also experience the richness of the land. If you really want to experience the core of spirituality and charm of natural beauty then these ghats are must visit for you.
  • Every Indian should visit this kind of 'Ghat' to know the tradition of India, to rediscover the oldest city of the world Varanasi.
  • It's really an ok ghat cause there are no huge facilities just you will feel ok here and there are steps to some extent area which takes you down to Ganges and there are no escalator for old people but still it's an ok ghat
