We went to the Assi Ghat to take Ganga snaan. Could take snaan easily, there are changing rooms available for ladies which makes it convenient. The temple on top is beautiful and the shivling at the ghat also enhances the divine feeling.

This ghat is main ghat due to its versatility.

You may come early morning 5AM to witness the ganga arti and then choose to have ganga snan across the river (boats can take you there for 50 rupees per person for a large group).

There is one room built for women to change across the river where you take the bath, however, no proper changing room. A changing room at the ghat side is occupied by some vendor and there is no administration.

Ramps are under construction and may get available soon for better accessibility.

We also took a boat ride for evening ganga arti at dashashwamedh ghat where the boat will take you until manikarnaka ghat and return. They took 200 rupees per person. View is spectacular of the ghats and arti (in case of less crowd).

Assi Ghat is the southernmost ghat in Varanasi. To most visitors to Varanasi, it is known for being a place where long-term foreign students, researchers, and tourists live. With hosting Subah-e-Banaras in the morning, assi ghat provides a spectacular notion of river Ganga.

One of the main ghats and one of the first of 88 ghats from south to north of the Ganges river is the Assi Ghat. it's a buzzing place of action due to the morning and evening Ganga aarti, with its famous lemon tea and varied chaats. It's a place of action in the evening and one of the most beautiful places to just sit and enjoy the revelry of chaotic varied myriad people and the serene Ganges. the sunrise is just an experience I will want to have again and again on the Ganges here reminding me that it is always a new beautiful beginning.

This is something you should not miss. The event is simply mesmerizing there are young girls from school who continuously reciting mantras and chants, in the front the aarti is performed and on one side Havan is performed. Anybody who has bathed is allowed to sit in the Havan. The view is amazing if you reach by 5:15 you get a comfortable seat on the stairs. and you see the night turn into morning the darkness turn to light right in front of ur eyes.
