Varanasi has 84 ghats out of which 5 are considered very holy.

In one ghat -dasashwamedha ghat , ganga aarathi is done every tuesday and special occassions.

Today Japanese PM Abe and N.Modi our PM participated in the colourful aarathi ceremony.

This ceremony staring with puja , followed with aarathi ceremony was televised live on many channels.

This was begun in 1991 and in first years was only twice a year . Now it is done throughout the year.

Varanasi naresh began the ritual puja when it was first started .

According to legend, brahma sacrificed ten horses to perform Dasa ashwamedha yagna here.

The colours, sound of bells, conch being blown and recitation of prayers to ganga was enchanting .

So was the the lighting and decked up stage and priests holding up the lighted lamps .

Well dressed ,decked up ladies in traditional attire added to the grandeur of the ceremony.

Something different on TV for a change.
