Every evening, hordes of devotees come to this spot to do aarti. At this time, the entire atmosphere gets filled with chants, and spirituality refreshes the soul. Whatever may be the idea behind your visit to Rishikesh, you must attend an evening aarti at this ghat.
Go on a Wildlife Safari in Rajaji National Park
