Varanasi Things to Do: 269 reviews and 463 photos


The chief bathing ghat in Varansi is Dasasvamedha Ghat and so you will find this area very busy. Tourist usually gravitate to this ghat to start their boat trips and mingle among the many pilgrims coming to bathe in the Ganges and perform their rituals. There is a temple here which honours Sheetala, an avatar of the powerful Parvati, wife of Shiva. The pink towers you see are dedicated to Shiva and Ganga.

Address: Ganges River, Varanasi
