A place to shop around. It's dusty and it's the Main Street to Kasi Viswanathan temple. Be careful of snatch thief.

Dasaswamedh Ghat holds the biggest evening aarti among the Varanasi ghats. It does get crowded during that time. Plan on arriving a little early to get a good spot, or ride a boat and experience the aarti from the waters.
