Night Pooja ceremonyEvery night there is an hour long Puja ceremony at the ghat and also at the next ghat about 100 metres away. At this main ghat there are 7 people performing the ceremony and 5 people at the next ghat. It is a very moving and interesting ceremony with fire, incense and many Indians actively participating. Thousands of devotees gather to watch this Aarti and by the end of the Ganga aarti ceremony, you can find thousands of small oil lamps floating on the river that would look like numerous stars on the water.
The nightly fire is a Dedication to River Ganga, Lord Shiva and the whole Universe.

Burning GhatsPeople love to see the fire blaze amid of the dark night of the death rituals taking place day and night. Here every other minute there is a group of male mourners shuffled by carrying a body covered in garlands of flowers on a bamboo litter and chanting to their God to accept the deceased on its journey to Nirvana.
It is believed that a dead human's soul finds salvation, when cremated here.
