Intimate Nighty Puja Arti Apr 16, 2011
Most travelers come to Varanasi and experience the Puja Arti at the Main Ghat (Dasaswamedh); while this grand ceremony is opulent it is still amidst a huge crowd filled with touts that may be bothersome for the overall experience. I do think it is important to visit the Main Ghat's Puja Arti for historical and traditional reasons but I have also found that the Puja Arti given every night (6:30pm) at Assi Ghat is more intimate and in a much more calm and peaceful setting. If you are going to be in Varanasi for a few days and are looking for a night activity that is safe, (why not) go to the Puja Arti at Assi Ghat and make a comparison to the function at the Main Ghat. I think you will also get a better feel of the local community without the touts and the hustle and bustle of the Old City/Gowdolia.
