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.

  • If I could give this tour more than 5 stars I would. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything to us as well as give us time to absorb and take everything in. He gave us a lot of options and let us choose what we wanted to do. However, as we are not familiar with Hindu customs, he answered all of our questions well. If you are a first time visitor to Varanasi, they will take care of you well on this tour.

  • Good to see. Guide was informative and got us a great place to view the whole show.

  • What a view! From a boat on the Ganges we experienced this array of colour and sound. It was made special when releasing candles on water.
