Dasaswamedh Ghat is in Varanasi . According to legends, it is the spot where Lord Brahma supposedly sacrificed ten horses, hence the name!
But the real highlight of this ghat is the Ganga Aarti, a daily ritual where priests wave around Aarti in a mesmerizing pattern to the tune of bhajans.
This experience is truly indescribable, but we’ll try anyway. Imagine the sun setting over the Ganges river, hundreds of people gathered on the ghat, and the sound of prayers and bells filling the air. It’s like a peaceful protest against stress and worries, and everyone is welcome to join in.
But be warned, Dasaswamedh Ghat is one of the busiest spots in Varanasi. If you’re looking for a quiet place to meditate, this isn’t it. However, if you’re looking for some delicious kachori, jalebi, and malaiyo in the nearby Thaterri bazaar, this is definitely the place to be.
Just remember to watch your step on those steep and slippery ghat steps, especially if you’re bringing along any elderly or knee-problem friends.
