Dashaswamedh Ghat, a much acclaimed religious spot, is a very favorite among the Hindu devotees and is considered as the main Ghat. It is believed that Lord Brahma performed his victorious Dasa_Ashwamedha (ten-horses) sacrifice in this spot. Legends claim that a similar kind of ten horse sacrifice was done here in the second century by Bhara Shiva Naga rulers.

The Ghat was renovated by Bajirao Pesava I in 1740 AD and later by the Queen of Indore, the princess Ahilyabai Holkar in 1774. This place attracts huge inflow of tourist everyday.

Dashaswamedh Ghat has credited with many religious temples and destinations nearby. This is one of the safe ghats with well laid steps and perfect platforms for the devotees to perform the rituals.
To visit and experience Uttar Pradesh hassle-free, view uttar pradesh tourism.
