Mitä teet

We go for a evening boat ride by the sunset and witness the activities by the river side in the evening, watch the cremation at Manikarnika Ghat from the boat. Learn about the cremation. Finally stop at Dasaswamedh Ghat to enjoy the Ganga Aarti ceremony from your private boat.
At dusk, we take a local boat on what is referred to as the `River of Heaven’ immersing in daily ritual, rich with the chanting of priests, sound of temple bells and fragrance of flowers and incense. We see brahmins along the banks invoking Lord Shiva, most powerful in the Hindu trinity, with a ceremonial ritual known as Aarti.
Aarti is a Sanskrit word for homage or devotion. The aarti or offering of lamps is observed at prescribed hours of the day and night to invoke the gods. It is believed that the gods physically present themselves before devotees at this ceremony. Lamps are revolved before the idol in a clockwise manner along with the chanting of hymns. This recitation is accompanied by drums, blowing of the conch-shell and the tolling of temple bells. At the end of the `aarti’, the priest takes a handful of water which he revolves around the god's idol. This is to pacify `agni’ (the fire god), who is pressed into service in the form of a wick lamp. The lamps themselves are charged with this "presence" and thus after the ceremony devotees collect the fumes and smear their faces with its aroma.

Great experience. Our guide shared and provided insights and aspects that we could never have found out on our own. Good to do on your first or second day as it provides great context and orientation.

We could not have asked for a better experience with Kunal and his incredible city of Varanasi. From the moment we booked he went out of his way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Guiding us and answering our questions via text before we even met.Our afternoon tour was an incredible experience, watching the cremations from the boat as the moon was rising was an intense and unforgettable moment that will be with us forever. Kunal’s knowledge is second to non, I feel like you could hang out with him for days and he wouldn’t run out of facts or stories! What a kind soul as well, always making sure us and strangers around him are happy and safe. We shared many laughs and personal stories in our short time together. I wish we could have stayed longer and done all of his tours. We could not recommend him and this tour enough!

I was extremely satisfied with this experience and let me tell you why. Our hotel was already on the river so it was easy to meet up with our guide and walk over to the boats. We had our own private boat which was an authentic rowing boat. I really appreciated that we took this boat because I really wanted an authentic Varanasi experience. We had visited two cremation sites, stopped for water, watched the evening ceremony, gotten masala tea afterwards, and we even asked our host where we should have dinner after such a long excursion and he walked us to a lovely place to eat with great food. He definitely went out of his way to make sure we were always comfortable and felt at home as welcomed in Varanasi. I loved that. He also had a vast knowledge about Varanasi and the culture here and he was very patient with all of our questions. I really felt relaxed and loved learning about everything my host had to say. I hope everyone can have a host as great as Shashank!
