This place is good to spend 3-4 hrs with family. You must bring some eatables and water. Try to avoid boats after subset.

This is one of holiest ghats in india, hundreds of thousands visit here every day. The place is very well arranged and managed. We saw the evening Arti which was beautiful beyond words. A boat ride on the Ganga river is also a must do.

Last prair of the day is the evening and it is lovely to see it deom the boat if you're lucky to get close enough, otherwise best to see it from the ghat. Lovely area full of history.

The best place to see evening Aarti. The varanasi which is mostly popular for is Ganga Aarti, the best Aarti and different shades of people with spirituality you can feel it alive.

Do not miss the Ganga Arathi performed every evening at 7 pm. It is one of the most breathtaking awe inspiring spectacular! If possible use the boat, so you are on the opposite side, the view is great.

Seeing the Ganga Arati at the Dasashwamedh Ghat is something that I recommend everyone in Benares to experience atleast once. Rent a boat from any of the Ghats around 6:30pm and be taken to the Ghat, where you sit in the boat and watch the...More

November will be a good time to visit. As these places get too hot during summers and too cold during winters. I suppose November's weather will be good, in case you enjoy winter. Aarti starts around 7 till 8pm. And you'll... More
