Know More about this tour

After hotel pickup in Varanasi, your evening experience of Aarti begins with your guide.

Hindus in India worship the River Ganges as a goddess, and each evening in Varanasi, the ceremony of Aarti is performed at the Dashashwamedh Ghat. Either from the ghat or from the waterside in a boat, you'll witness this tradition, which features precise choreography involving rituals performed by several priests, accompanied by the sound of bells, drums, cymbals, and Sanskrit mantras. The river is also worshiped with flower petals.

Admire the glow of light being offered to the gods before you are returned to your hotel to end your experience.
