Triveni Ghat overview

The Triveni Ghat is defined as the meeting point of the Ganges, Yamuna, and Saraswati. Triveni Ghat, which is the most sacred bathing location and is regarded as the holiest place in Rishikesh, is tucked away in the Himalayas. All year long, Triveni Ghat is overrun with people. People who bathe in ghats are said to have their sins washed away, leaving them with a pure soul. Visitors come from all over the world to take a bath in the holy waters in an effort to find heavenly redemption. Holy chanting, floral scents, earthen lamplight, and a sense of tranquilly will surround you as soon as you set eyes on the Ghat.

Here, Maha-Arti is practised twice a day, in the morning and the evening. The arti is relevant today and is claimed to have unique meaning for those who attend. Despite the large crowds, Maha-Arti is attended both times throughout the year with tremendous passion and dedication. Devotees often cast little oil lights into the holy water on boats fashioned of large leaves. Other rituals, such as the 'Pindha Daan', which is conducted here, are also thought to be crucial for ancestor redemption.
