KASI
The Royal place of Lord Siva

PANCHAGANG GHAT

According to belief, the five famous rivers - Kirana, Dhutapapa, Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati meet here. The famous Bindu Madhava temple is situated at the head of the well built flight. And it is also consecrated by the association of Mahakavi Tulasidas, who joined the Ramanandmath, situated atop the ghat, and acquired proficiency in sastras with which his mind was fully blossomed, fit to writing that immortal Ramacharithamanas. So lures pilgrims for prayers always.

KAPALA MOCHANA GHAT

Lord Maheswar, legend says, committed the sin of Brahmahatya, when he plucked out the fifth head of Brahma in a fit a anger. He went round the world far expiation of sin with skull bowl in his band, taking bath in every holy thirtha. It was only here his bowl disappeared, signifying the redemption of sin; so it became very sacred. It purges one of all sins when bathed.

HANUMAN GHAT

It lies next to Harischandra ghat. It is famous for its remarkable tranquility that lured and enabled Vayuputra Hanuman to mediate and got his wish fulfilled. This area is colonized, as it were, by South Indians - People from Tamil Nadu, Andhra, Kerala and Mysore,, as evidenced big sized Dharmasalas and fine temples maintained by their Trusts bearing the marks of South Indian sculptural models.
