Images: Ganga Aarti

Along the banks of Ganga, devout people perform daily aarti to 'Ma Ganga' in the evenings. The most famous of these is in Har-ki-Pauri ghat of Haridwar. A popular aarti also happens at Varanasi every evening in Dasaswamedh Ghat. A quieter and less known aarti is performed in front of Parmarth Niketan Ashram, Rishikesh. Here are a few images of aarti from all these places.

The aarti at Haridwar is visited by thousands of pilgrims from all over the country.

Priests perform aarti in the darkness after sunset.


The aarti at Dasaswamedh Ghat in Varanasi is an elaborately choreographed ritual.

Lamps glitter in the hands of the performers.


The aarti at Rishikesh is a quieter affair and is visited by very few people, occupants and pupil at Parmarth Niketan Ashram.

It is performed against a statue of Shiva in the middle of the Ganga.

The aarti at Rishikesh has a feel-good and is not noisy unlike rest of the aartis. It feels good to be here, and makes you wish to come back again and again.

pretty warm coverage :) a little blur though on some of the snaps... blame it on low light..subjects in motion and the use of a high focal length..
