Ganga Aarti Rishikesh
Holy cities on the bank of Ganges like Varanasi, Haridwar and Rishikesh hold spectacular Ganga Aarti ceremony every evening at Sunset. The sunset Ganga Aarti at Parmarth Niketan / Triveni Ghat, Rishikesh is considered one of the best. Pilgrims gather on the banks of the Ganges where fire is offered to Lord Shiva & Holy River Ganges. The ceremony commences around the sunset with the singing of Bhajans (devotional songs). The Maa Ganga Aarti is done with lamps that are lit and passed from people to people. A grand lighted statue of lord Shiva in the backdrop makes the experience truely mesmerizing.
