Harish Chandra Ghat

Harish Chandra Ghat

“Harish Chandra Ghat” is one of the oldest Ghats of Varanasi. “Harish Chandra Ghat” is name after a mythological King Harish Chandra, who once worked at the cremation ground here for the perseverance of truth and charity. It is believed that the Gods rewarded him for his resolve, charity and truthfulness and restored his lost throne and his dead son to him. Harish Chandra Ghat is one of the two cremation Ghats (the other being Manikarnika Ghat) and is sometimes referred as Adi Manikarnika (the original creation ground). Hindus from distant places bring the dead bodies of their near and dear ones to the Harish Chandra Ghat for cremation. In Hindu mythology it is believed that if a person is cremated at the Harish Chandra Ghat, that person gets salvation or "MOKSHA". The Harish Chandra Ghat was somewhat modernized in late 1980's, when an electric crematorium was opened here.
