About Ganga Aarti

The history of the Ganga Aarti dates back to the 19th Century when Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya started the ritual. It is continued till date and happens twice daily. You must take a good note of the timings during which the Aarti is performed as they are all different in each month. If you are an early riser, you can attend the morning aarti which is usually done at 5 in the morning or else experience the evening aarti that happens between 5 p.m to 6 p.m. The Ganga aarti is performed at the famous Har Ki Pauri ghat which in itself is a major tourist attraction. Daily, the aartis are done by selected Pandits, chosen by the Ganga Sabha. If you want to have a good spot while the aarti is being conducted, you need to reach the place much before the given timings.

Historical Context: People revere the river Ganga as a holy river and thus perform aarti to show their love and respect.
Pro Tip: Be there before time to get a good spot
