Place is overcrowded. Proper maintenance is required. The auto drivers and shop representatives will drive you crazy. Cleanliness is required badly.

Dashashwmedh ghat is bank of river Ganga. It’s surrounded by lots of tamples. You can enjoy boat ride over here.

Too many touts and peddlers completely spoils the ambiance of the ghat. You can’t walk without being approached by someone trying to sell something.

It is a must visit place. You will love the ganga aarthi in the evening time. You will experience the positive energies during the pooja time. Finally, take a boat ride after the pooja to see the different ghats.

Recently went there to spend some time with friends. A beauty of ghats of Varanasi is that you don't need to search for a boat to ride. The boatman will come to you and ask if you are willing to. We were three people and... More
