Narada was a celestial sage. He practised sage hood and linked it to self-cultivation and strived for balance. He believed in harmony and human perfection. He dedicated his life into finding a balance between himself and other human beings. He wanted the greater order of things. He emerged from the forehead of Lord Brahma, the Creator. Hindu mythology tells us how he chanted the name Narayana, which is another name for Lord Vishnu. He is regarded as the inventor of the musical instrument veena.

Ghats in Varanasi are riverfront steps leading to the banks of River Ganges. The city has nearly 100 Ghats. Most of the Ghats are used for bathing and puja ceremony.

All the Ghats are associated with myths and religious legends. Boat rides at the break of dawn are very popular with tourists.

The previous name of this Ghat is Kuvai Ghat. It was constructed by Dattatreya Swami, a monastery chief, in 1788. The four important idols in the temple at Narad ghat are Naradeshvara, Atrishvara, Vasukishvara and Dattatreyeshvar. Swami Dattatreya is recognized as an Avatar or incarnation of Shiva and as the Adi-Guru (First Teacher) of the Adinath Sampradaya of the Nathas.
