Panchganga Ghat, Varanasi: How To Reach, Best Time & Tips

About Panchganga Ghat

This ghat has got its name from the confluence of five major rivers Yamuna, Saraswati, Dhutpapa, Kirana, and the Ganges. Devotees from all across the world gather here to take a dip in the holy river Ganga. The ghat is very deep and broad, and the turrets and stairs of the ghats are made of stone.

The Mosque of Alamgir is located close to the ghat, which was built by Aurangzeb after destroying the Bindu Madhava temple that stood in place of the mosque. This ghat also bears testimony to the Hindu-Muslim relations as it is revered to be the site of the initiation of Sufi-Sant tradition.
