    I didn’t know that these bathing places were called a Ghat and there were so many in an area. I especially love the Darbhanga Ghat, you are right it is the most photogenic. Did you get a chance to bathe in many of them?

    I went to Varansi when I was five years old! I need to go back, feel like there is so much more to see there now, and I didn’t know much about these Ghats

    Glad to know about so many Ghats in Varanasi. From all the ghats, I liked Darbhanga ghat. It looks photogenic when photographed while enjoying a ride in a boat for sure. I didn’t know there was a ghat where women are prohibited to enter. I respect all cultural values and traditions But I wish if they could allocate a specific ghat for bathing purposes and stop bathing rituals at other ghats to preserve the environment and water.

    Thank you for letting us have a glimpse of Varanasi. This reminds me of some scenes in some movies. Indeed this looks mysteriously sacred.

    I never been to Varanasi but it is really on my list as to watch the ghats and special Ganga Arti on the ghats is my dream. You have beautifully captured all 32 ghats. And all of them are worth visiting especially the Man Mandir Ghat for Rajput architecture.

    Wow, honestly, I did not have any idea about Varanasi ghats before this. I had a vague image of the riverside filled with devotees in the evenings. The reason why I loved this article so much is because the way you have not just listed the ghats but highlighted some historical and religious aspects of these places.
