About Triveni Ghat

The confluence of three sacred rivers- the Ganges, the Yamuna, and the Saraswati- Triveni Ghat, is the most esteemed sacred bathing spot in Rishikesh. Situated on the banks of river Ganges, the ghat is crowded by thousands of pilgrims who visit the place to dip in the holy river and attend the spiritual gathering (Aarti) performed every day during the evenings. One tryst with the sacred waters at Triveni Ghat washes away all the sins and purifies the soul and gets relief from all sins. It is said that the water at Triveni Ghat has the power to redeem everything. The ghat holds a historical significance in the Hindu mythologies like Ramayana and Mahabharat and Puranas. According to the ancient texts, this is the place where Krishna has visited after being hit by an arrow and is considered to be the cremation ground of Lord Krishna. The main attractions of Triveni Ghat include the Gita Temple, Bharat Temple, and Laxmi- Narayan Temple. The Ghat also has a market nearby selling precious and semi-precious stones, knickknacks, clothes, puja items, CDs, and tapes.

Historical Context: According to the ancient texts, this is the place where Krishna has visited after being hit by an arrow and is considered to be the cremation ground of Lord Krishna.
