Harishchandra Ghat Varanasi

Varanasi or Kashi or Banaras city has a total of 88 ghats on the Holy river The Ganga. Most of the ghats are used by people for bathing and puja ceremony ghats, however, two ghats are used for cremation sites in which Harishchandra Ghat is one of cremation Ghat and the other is Manikarnika Ghat. Harish Chandra Ghat is different from the opposite ghats where people come cremation only.

This ghat is known as in honor of fanciful King Harish Chandra, the image of honesty and an honest cause. As indicated by stories, he worked at this incineration ground, and the prevalent view is that God compensated him for his assurance, noble cause, and honesty, by giving him back his dead child and lost the seat. Hindus bring the dead assortments of family members and friends and family from removed zones to Harish Chandra Ghat for incineration since it is accepted that an individual whose last rights are performed here gets salvation or 'moksha.' In late 1980's this ghat saw an expansion of an electrical crematorium also . Vacationers ought not to anticipate a pretty sight at this ghat.

Most of the ghats were rebuilt in the 18th century. The patrons of current ghats are Marathas, Shinde's (Scindias), Holkars, Bhonsles, and Peshwes. Many ghats are related to legends or mythologies while many ghats are privately owned. Morning boat ride on the Ganges across all the ghats from Assi ghat to Raj Ghat is a popular visitor attraction.
