Dashashwamedh Ghat- Varanasi Popular & Famous Ghats

Dashashwamedh Ghat is located near to Vishwanath Temple and is presumably the most spectacular ghat. Two Hindu mythologies are associated with it: According to one, Lord Brahma made it welcome Lord Shiva. As per another, Lord Brahma sacrificed ten horses, during Dasa-Ashwamedha yajna performed here. A group of priests daily perform in the evening at this ghat “Agni Pooja” (Worship to Fire) wherein a dedication is made to Lord Shiva, River Ganges, Surya (Sun), Agni (Fire), and the whole universe.
