Subah-e-Banaras Aarti and morning cruise at AssiGhat
Today we will be covering many places and it’s gonna be a packed day, so be prepared. Starting from 5:00 AM in the morning to the 8-9 PM at the night, you will be with us. First of all, you’ll be taken to AssiGhat where Subah-e-Banaras Ganga Aarti is all set to enthrall the visitors. Afterward, you’ll enjoy an hour-long boat ride. A trip to Varanasi can never be completed without a soothing cruise amid the mighty waves of Ganga. During this one hour, you’ll witness the sheer spirituality and the utter devotion of Banarasi people. People taking a dip in the holy water of Ganga and offering the prayers to Lord Sun is a worth capturing moment. From AssiGhat, you will be taken to Manikarnika ghat which is also sometimes tagged as ‘Burning Ghat’ because here, you’ll see the burning pyres throughout the day. According to Hindu mythology, this Ghat is considered to extremely pious for the cremation. That’s why, unnumbered of bodies are cremated here every day.
We’ll leave from here within 15 minutes and will be back to HarischandraGhat where you’ll get down from the boat and will visitSankaracharyaAashram. Without spending much time here, we’ll head over to KaamKoteshwar Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva. Constructed in South Indian architectural style, KaamKoteshwar Temple is an architectural wonder in Varanasi. Next, we’ll proceed on to Kinaram Ashram which is also known as the headquarter of AghorPanth.
The second half of the day, you’ll be spending at Jain spiritual places such as Digambar Jain Temple Bhelupur and Jangambadi Math, Gowdolia. After a long sightseeing day, we’ll bring it to a halt here.
