To completely immerse yourself in the spirituality of Varanasi, you must attend the nightly prayers. From the crowded ghat, or from the water, it is an opportunity not to be missed.

The Ganga Aarti ceremony in the evening is as colourful and loud as anything I've ever seen but seemed joyous as well as solemn. For 100 rupees we sat on rickety chairs up several dark flights of stairs somewhere at the back and it was a fantastic spectacle.

The Ganga Aarti is mesmerising and pulls you in a trance, with the beauty of the performance and the power of the chants.

Excellent presentation of the Aarti (prayer to the river Ganges) daily at 6.30pm. It takes 1 hour with the singing and the prayers. Something unique to the Ganges and this specific type of Hindu practice as I understand. It's a contrast to the more sombre and black ghats like Marnmanika and Harish Chandra ghats that do the cremation.

The Ghats are part of India tradition, therefore a must see from the water. Plenty of boats available to take you for a short cruise in both directions.

The busiest of Varanasi's Ghats. Spectacular evening aarti, awesome chai in the morning, cows and pilgrims, tourists, yogis, sadhus, sages and saints coexist.
