About This Boat

Take a boat tour on the Ganges River at dawn to absorb the mystical atmosphere and see first-hand the sacred fires of the Manikarnika cremation Ghat and the ancient architecture along the riverfront which is dotted with 15th century Maharaja palaces and temples. This will also be your opportunity to see Hindu worshipers doing their daily devotional rituals (puja) along the river. Believers bathe early in the morning to offer the prayers to the rising sun…….a true representation of Hindu faith at its most humble.

Our tour will begin at Dasash wamedh Ghat, floating the fluid currents past the many ghats, palaces and temples. During the ride, the Varanasi tour guide will introduce you to the history and folklore of Varanasi and point out famous landmarks and explain the morning rituals.

One of the oldest and most famous ghats in Varanasi is the cremation ghat, Manikarnika Ghat, where the sacred funeral fires burn 24 hours a day. Every pious Hindu believes that to die in Varanasi and to be cremated on the banks of the Ganges is to attain release from the cycle of birth and death (reincarnation)….thus achieving Moksha (salvation) and ending the cycle for good.
