Asi Ghat, the Ghat located at the confluence of Assi River and the holy Ganges, is the southernmost Ghat in Kashi. The Ghat is renowned for a spectacular and large Shiva Lingam placed under a Peepal Tree. This is a favorite spot for Hindu devotees to offer their prayers to Lord Shiva after taking holy dip in the river.

This religiously important place got its reference in many puranas, including Matsya Purana, Kurma Purana, Agni Purana and Padma Purana. Legendary stories describe this Ghat as the place where Goodess Durga thrown out her sword after killing the Asura demons Shumbha- Nishumbha.

The place breasts one more ancient Shiva temple enshrining a Shiva lingam famously known as Asisangameshwar lingam. It was at this place the renowned saint poet Tulasi Das completed the famous literary work Ramcharitmanas. Hindu devotees throng to this Ghat to take holy dip in the confluence and it is a very busy place with performance of Hindu religious rituals all through the year.
