Every evening at sunset we celebrate the Ganga Aarti, the prayer for the Goddess Mother Ganga, at Har-ki-Pauri Gath, a place where God Vishnu is told to have left his mark.

Evening Ganga Aarti- Every evening at sunset we celebrate the Ganga Aarti, the prayer for the Goddess Mother Ganga, at Har-ki-pairi Gath, a place where God Vishnu is told to have left his mark. The devotional ritual uses fire as an offering and nights on the Ganges are lit with hundreds of floating flames that light up the river in flower petals baskets.

Ganga Aarti- The Ganga Aarti ceremony is a Hindu ritual dedicated to the Goddess Mother Ganga, the Goddess of the most sacred Indian River, the Ganges, and is celebrated every day at dawn and dusk in the sacred cities of Haridwar, Rishikesh, and Varanasi. For the Aarti or Arati ritual, a metal tray, strewn with flowers, is generally used, on which a metal or terracotta lamp is placed, filled with clarified butter, Ghee, or oil, to feed the flame burning a cotton wick. Large, richly decorated lamps are used for the most important and lavish public events. This ceremony serves to expose a statue, a deity or a person to the beneficial and purifying effect of fire. In Hinduism, it is believed that even statues of deities are exposed to evil influences, and for this reason, especially in temples, idols are protected with these ceremonies of fire at least twice a day, generally at dawn and dusk. In the same way, the sacred river Ganges with the Ganga Aarti is protected in the sacred cities.
