About Manmandir Ghat

To reach the Man Mandir Ghat, one needs to take a short walk from Godaulia in Varanasi, as no vehicle is allowed beyond that point. The ghat close to Kashi Vishwanath Temple and Dashashwamedha Ghat is one of the places often visited by pilgrims to the holy city. Constructed by Maharaja Man Singh of Amber in 1600, the ghat also houses a palace showcasing exquisitely ornate window carvings. It has an interesting observatory on the roof. The observatory at Man Mandir Ghat was constructed later in 1710 at the Palace by Sawai Jai Singh II. There is a huge stone made instrument, which was once upon a time used for studying the movement of heavenly bodies like the sun, moon, star and others. One of the main attractions at the observatory is the Jantar Mantar. Stone balconies at the northern part of the Ghat offer a great view. Devotees come here from all around the country to pay respect to the lingam of Someswar or another avatar of Lord Shiva. Other shrines close by are Dalabhesvara, Remesvara, and Sthuladanta Vinayaka.
