Triveni Ghat, Rishikesh

4.5
Witness a traditional Hindu prayer at Triveni Ghat, one of the area's most-visited ceremonies along the river. Set atop a ghat, or flight of riverfront steps, the prayer involves chanted verses along with bells and drums played by devotees. You can visit and watch as large numbers of leaf boats, filled with flowers and topped with oil candles, are set afloat on the Ganges. Alternatively, stop by one of the many nearby stalls to grab a lantern of your own and add it to the flotilla. Note that two other holy rivers, the Saraswathy and the Yamuna, join with the Ganges here.

  • Atmospheric with Aarti at Trivevi Ghat. Sat quietly and looked at all the preparations and prayers. The swing with the Lampporna with live fire was impressive, beautiful. After Aarti followed live music (Bhajans), to which people rose and dance. Don't miss out when you are in Rishikesh.

  • It was great to be involved in the Arat (Ceremonial Evening prayer), which always begins when the Sun Falls. Finally there was a religious dance, which can all be attended.

  • I've visited this amazing place n number of times, however it seems like a new place to me in every visit. It is always crowded but it will provide you, your part of calming atmosphere. Love this place
  • Ghat is maintained properly. Good to see proper concrete pathways and benches around. Although people are in habit of making it dirty.
