  • It is a place where Gang Arti is performed in the morning at 6 AM and in the evening between 6 PM to 7 .You are not allowed to come here with your shoes or slippers Priest first chant Arti wordings,then every body repeat it. With ringing of bell and conch atmosphere become religious and magical .
  • Ganga Aarti in Har ki pauri ghat is a memory you will cherish forever once you witness it, especially the evening one which starts at 6.30. The soul stirring ceremony kicks off with a community pledge by everyone to keep Ganga clean. Diyas lit, mantras being chanted, devotional singing, pulsing energy of the collected gathering, a palpable spiritual feeling all around is bound to transfix and transform you. You may find in Ganga the voice of life itself, of being and of becoming, always flowing no matter what.
