Silence from Ghats to Ganges
There are 84 ghats in Varanasi and there is silence on all the ghats. Not only this, people are now afraid to even go to the waves of the Ganga. People coming here should avoid boating, because the places with water feel the most humidity and sunlight. Let me tell you, not a single boat is seen floating here from 11 in the day to 4 in the evening. It is estimated that in the month of April, the heat is going to bother people more.
Popular Ghats of Varanasi
places to visit in assi ghat
It is the southernmost ghat of Varanasi, located near the Banaras Hindu University. Hence, this ghat is frequented by mostly university students. Goddess Durga is believed to have thrown her sword or ‘Asi’ here after killing the demons, Shumbha-Nishumbha. That’s why the stream here is named Assi. After all this ghat is named after the river.
This ghat is a Hindu cremation ground as well as one of the holiest ghats in Varanasi. According to Hindu belief, the souls of those who are cremated here attain salvation and are freed from the wrath of such births. According to mythology, the earring of Sati fell at this place. Because of this Manikarnika (literally meaning ear ornament) was born.
About Dashashwamedh Ghat
This is the most important and most spectacular ghat of Varanasi. This Ghat is very near to Kashi Vishwanath.

For this reason, taking a bath here gives the result of ten Ashwamedha Yagyas. It is believed that Brahma built this ghat to welcome Shiva. It is also called Brahma Dwar or the Gate of Brahma. Also, this Ghat is one of the “Panch Teerths” of Kashi.
