Do visit it and do be the part of the grand Ganga Aarti. Visiting during and post rains is not recommended as the waters comes to the ghats and you do not enjoy the ghats.

It was once an overwhelming place, nowadays a tourist trap, a hawkers’ hole. Do your own thing, pray, watch but please forget and forgive those who will try to take advantage of you. Then it will be a real experience.
