"Kedar Ghat" Varanasi Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

Varanasi Things to Do: 269 reviews and 463 photos


This ghat was my first one and so my first taste of the ghats along the Ganges. It was constructed by the Maharaja of Vijayanagar and is named after Lord Shiva. At the top part is the Temple of Kedaresvara and below is the Gauri Kund which is said to consist of waters with rejuvenating qualities. The shrine is popular with Bengalis.
