Harischandra Ghat is one among two cremation grounds with burning facilities in Varanasi. This is named after the King Harishchandra, who spent his part of the life as a keeper of a crematorium to preserve his truth and virtues. This Ghat existed here many centuries and it was in 1740, a Hindu saint named Narayana Dikshit renovated it. Many people bring the mortal remains of their relatives and friends to this place to pyre. It is believed that one can attain ‘Moksha’ (Salvation), if cremated in this place.

An imposing temple is adorning this place. The temple encloses beautiful structures of Harisdchandra, Vriddha Kedara and Adi Manikanteshwra.

I like this place. Every time I visit. The Ganga aarati, Harish Chandra Ghat, the people, the narrow lanes, the magestic Ganga, and people.

The city is vibrant. Its a blend of old India vis a vis the New India.

There is no disconnect. What I see between the two is-both can coexist with distinct coherence
