Mani Karnika _ Harishchandra Ghat

Manikarnika and Harishchandra Ghats are where you can witness the ritual of cremation from a respectful distance, giving a lifetime experience. Harishchandra Ghat is a cremation Ghat, named after the legendary king Harishchandra who is said to have lost everything in desire for self-abnegation, a king who kept honesty above everything and was reduced to work as a Dom or scavenger at the cremation ground. People in this part of the city believe that this is the oldest cremation ground in Varanasi, surpassing even Manikarnika Ghat in its, sanctity. A narrow gali from the chowk, leads you to Manikarnika, the most significant cremation Ghat of Varanasi. Hundreds of mourners and professional pall-bearers go along the alley carrying dead bodies. Guides at Manikarnika Ghat will show you the Chakrakund, a holy pool, where Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati are said to have bathe together. Here, one can also explore the Shamshaneshwar and Kaaleshwar Mahadev Temples, and the eternal fire that has been burning here for over 3000 years. Till today, this Ghat remains wreathed in smoke.
