My first stop was at Dashashwamedh Ghat, which is one of the most prominent ghats in Varanasi. This ghat is believed to be the site where Lord Brahma performed a ritual sacrifice, and it is said that the reigning king of Kashi performs a similar sacrifice here every ten years. As I walked along the ghat, I saw pilgrims bathing in the river, performing puja (ritual worship), and offering prayers to the gods. The atmosphere was one of reverence and devotion, and I felt humbled to be a part of it. In the Footsteps of the Faithful: A Pilgrimage to Varanasi’s Ganga Ghats.

Next, I visited Manikarnika Ghat, which is considered to be the most sacred ghat in Varanasi. It is here where the dead are cremated, and it is believed that the souls of those who are cremated here are immediately liberated from the cycle of rebirth. As I watched the burning pyres, I was struck by the realization of the impermanence of life and the inevitability of death. It was a sobering and yet powerful experience that left me with a renewed appreciation for the gift of life. In the Footsteps of the Faithful: A Pilgrimage to Varanasi’s Ganga Ghats.
