Triveni Ghat
About Triveni Ghat

Tri means three and veni means confluence. Hence Triveni means confluence of the three. This place is considered to be the convergence of the Ganges, the Yamuna and legendry Saraswati river, is a most revered sacred bathing spot in Rishikesh and is situated on the banks of Ganges River. Triveni Ghat holds a sacred value and is considered as a great place for pilgrimage.

Triveni Ghat is a sacred Ghat and bathing spot on the right bank of river Ganges, where devotees take a holy dip and offer their heartful prayers. The arti ceremony at Trivani Ghat takes place daily at sunset. An Awe-inspiring sight, when flame of belief enlightens the whole environment and the mind and body revitalized by the songs recited in praise of the Ganges. Devotees release flower-filled leaf boats carrying tiny oil lamps and let them float out on the river which is the ceremony of worship, remembrance and hope.

One must take a boat ride in Ganges to get the joy of nature including gushing waters, mountain ranges, forest and wild life. It is of belief that those who take a dip in Triveni Ghat will have salvation, a relief from all sins carried out; the water here has the power to purify them. Devotees make many offerings at Triveni ghat, in the early morning at sunrise they offer milk to the river and happily feed the fish in the Ghat. An imposing view of lamps floated in the river as part of aarti ceremony is pleasing to eyes after the sunset.
