KASI
The Royal place of Lord Siva

THE FAMOUS GHATS

All religious activity takes place on the picturesquely situated crescent shaped left bank, consecrated by scores of famous ghats and holy shrines built atop the flights. There 64 ghats, among them Manikarnika ghat, Kedar ghat, Harischandra ghat, Hanuman ghat, Bindumadhava ghat, Pancha Ganga Ghat etc., are exceptionally holy. Lord Viswanath, they believe does not dwell in that holy Mandir itself, he is seen in every inch of the place, and particularly in the Ganges water and on the ghats. Hectic spiritual life goes round the clock and in every season. And certain places dear to the Lord are much crowded. Each ghat has a story of its own, and casts a special spell imbued with holiness and so people congregate on them for several purposes, like bathing, giving darias, offering pindapradanas, listening to Pumas etc. Boat ride to other ghats on opposite bank is another attraction here.
