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.

Ganga Aarti at Triveni Ghat

The evening aarti is also called the Maha Aarti and is conducted from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM every day. It is one of the most popular and well-attended rituals of the town, Rishikesh. The Maha Aarti is performed by chanting bhajans in praise of the lord and is celebrated by beating electrifying drums and rhythmic bells. The prayers offered to the lord are melodious and hypnotising, allowing you to feel the energy of the lord and connect with him.

The devotees release small floating leaf boats with oil lamps or gleaming diyas in them. The entire river is dotted with these little burning flames and the beauty of yellow flames in the dark water under the twinkling night sky is unparalleled.
