In every ghat of Varanasi during the evening time, a special puja is offered to the river Ganga. It is believed that the river is a goddess and thus everyday in the evening the pundits from the temples arrive here to do aarti.


This time of the day is really a feast for the eye as the dark river is illuminated by the flames that are lit to offer prayers to the river.
