Ganga Arti

In Rishikesh the main pilgrimage activity is Ganga Arti, which literally translates to "footsteps of the Lord". Oil lamps are lit and the gigantic flames of fire go up in the air as dhoti-kurta-clad ministers offer them to God in the midst of noisy Chants on the banks of the holy river Ganga.

Here in Rishikesh evening prayer or Aarti is performed for Goddess Ganga every day. This is an enchanting ritual and when in Rishikesh you simply cannot miss this spectacle of sound and colour and spirituality. The sight of lighted diyas or oil lamps that are ritually floated in the river after the arti, in memory of ancestors, will definitely mesmerise you.
