Ganga Aarti at Shatrughan Ghat – The Lighting Ceremony

Ganga Aarti at Shatrughan GhatThe Lighting Ceremony – the place where only peace and spirituality exist. The best I have ever been to! A bank of the river Ganges with an amazing view. As evening falls, there is an aura of heightened power throughout; it’s like a meditative experience as you witness all these rituals being performed. The calmness of the river Ganges spreads a message that goes deep into my soul without any noise. Love this Ganga Aarti at the time of the evening at Shatrughan Ghat, Rishikesh

The Perfect Ganga Aarti at Shatrughan

Every evening, on the banks of Ganga, at Satrughan ghat in Rishikesh, where the holy river Ganga touches the plain and its water stays fresh even when kept in bottles over a long period of time – you can find people gathered together to view a mesmerizing evening Ganga Aarti. These Ghats bring together devotees and curious sightseers to observe the evening  Ganga Aarti ritual by offering oil lamps with devotion while singing the praise of the river Ganga.

My Experience

Awesome Scenic Beauty! Wow! 10 minutes go by, and I find that the scenery is working its magic. My skin tingles and a sense of peace washes over me as if a carapace has been dissolved away. The overpowering beauty of nature flaunts itself before my eyes while I spread out my arms to feel the soft water caress me underneath the gravity-defying Maa Ganga. I feel centered and grounded as never before.
