Triveni Ghat, Rishikesh

4.5
Witness a traditional Hindu prayer at Triveni Ghat, one of the area's most-visited ceremonies along the river. Set atop a ghat, or flight of riverfront steps, the prayer involves chanted verses along with bells and drums played by devotees. You can visit and watch as large numbers of leaf boats, filled with flowers and topped with oil candles, are set afloat on the Ganges. Alternatively, stop by one of the many nearby stalls to grab a lantern of your own and add it to the flotilla. Note that two other holy rivers, the Saraswathy and the Yamuna, join with the Ganges here. With our online itinerary creator, Rishikesh attractions like Triveni Ghat can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • This place is crowd less. Their is so much peace that you can even heard your heart voice. If you visit there be sure you should respect peace and calmness of this place.
  • The Ganges evening light festival in Rishikesh, India is a worthwhile experience. The sun drops over the mountains and the chant begins then 'candles' are lit and the light ceremony begins. After the ceremony the people dance and put small rafts, with fire on them,into the Ganges. A wonderful evening
