There are different kinds of people at the Ghats for different reasons with different thoughts and purpose of their visit. While some are playing cricket at one of the Ghats, last rites of a small boy are performed at the other. Boat ride scenes are common view on the Ghats. Some enjoying the boat rides, while some making their way towards Ghats for ‘Evening Aarti’ (prayer). By the evening, everyone is left with only one purpose, the ‘Ganga Aarti’ which takes place at the main Ghat - Dasaswamedh Ghat. As the sun sets, the devotees finish their individual prayers and reach back to Ghats, where the assistants to priests set up the stage for Ganga Aarti.
Everyone gathers at Ghat and reserves their places while a few prefers to watch the prayers from boats. The whole environment is mesmerized with chants and the sound of bells.
