Ganga Aarti at Triveni Ghat, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand

Rishikesh tour evening hours and I visited Triveni Ghat to attend holy river Ganga Aarti. Little early I was at the venue and a thought to know the history. Organizers were present monitoring arrangements. Upon request Shri J. M. Arora – Treasurer of Ganga Sewa Samiti narrated the history in-short as follows:

Though we all know holy river Ganga is worship since thousand years but in the year 1993 Ganga Sewa Samiti was formed under the guidance of respected citizens of Rishikesh such as Dr. C. L. Kohli, Shri Ram Babu Agarwal and few more to worship holy river Ganga at this venue i.e., Triveni Ghat at a certain time and in an organized manner. The members added donation for the maintenance of the ghat constructed by the government. Since then evening hours Ganga Aarti is conducted, supervised under the guidance of Ganga Sewa Samiti.

6:30 evening hours is the time for Aarti during summer days and winter days a little earlier.
