The ghats are Varanasi’s most fascinating area, offering the perfect place for people watching and an introduction to the traditions and rituals of this ancient city. There are 87 ghats in total, running along the west bank of the Ganges, all of which are usually buzzing with activity. The ghats are used for bathing, performing puja and cremation – Varanasi’s ghats are the most auspicious place for Hindus to be cremated. The best way to view the day to day life on the ghats is with a boat trip on the Ganges, though walking along them through the throngs of people is also a wonderful way to experience Varanasi.
