Good place with less facilities. There are two small eateries facing Assi Ghat, facilities are not so good. Some good hotels are available facing Assi Ghat near these eateries.

At this ghat you can sit quietly and watch the ganges, chat with your friends over a cup of chai,watch the evening arti performed every morning.I find this ghat to be one of the cleanest in Banaras.

The aarti is performed here early morning 5 -530 a.m. under the Subah e Banars cultural and spiritual event. In winter timing may have changed. Please ask your Hotel or Guest House once you arrive in Banaras.
