About Evening Aarti at Ganges

Varanasi is a well-known holy place in India which sees numerous visitors all-round the year. The aarti ceremony held in the evening at the Ganges is very popular amongst the pilgrims. It is performed by a group of priests at the Dashashwamedh Ghat. During the festivals, or some special occasions and on Tuesdays, a particular kind of aarti is performed at this ghat. This aarti ceremony is a visual treat for everyone and hence all the tourists make it a point to witness it during their visit to Varanasi. The aarti ceremony takes place after the sunset around 6.30 PM, and it continues for about 45 minutes in the presence of a huge crowd. The aarti is performed using the brass lamps along with the rhythmic chanting of the mantras by the pupils of the Upanishads and Vedas. This is a magnificent event which cannot be missed by the visitors.
