Ranked 5 among Places to Visit in Rishikesh
Time Required: 1-2 hrs
Situated on the banks of the holy river Ganges, Triveni Ghat is the biggest ghat in Rishikesh and the spot of the confluence of the three sacred rivers- Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati. These rivers are considered extraordinarily pious and pure in the Hindu religion and are celebrated by every follower of this faith. It is believed that a dip in the holy waters by Triveni Ghat can purify you and cleanse you of all sins, worries and fears. They say the great Lord Krishna was shot in the leg by an arrow shot by Jara- a hunter at this very spot. 'Maha Aarti' happens every evening at Triven Ghat.
Triveni Ghat plays an essential role in Hindu Mythology and is also mentioned in the epics Ramayan and Mahabharat. The Triveni Ghat is also where the chattri of Lord Krishna was constructed. In fact, the ghat is considered to be the cremation ground for the great Lord Krishna. Along with the holy dips, the devotees also make offerings to the river in the form of milk, while feeding the fishes in the Ghat too.
