Manikarnika Ghat, Bhadohi
About Manikarnika Ghat
Manikarnika Ghat (Hindi: मणिकर्णिका घाट) is one of the holiest river fronts (ghats), alongside the river Ganga, in the city of Varanasi in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. This is not the burning ghat of Varanasi, as is largely believed, as cremation rites are not done on this ghat. It is the adjacent Jalasen ghat that is actually the burning ghat where at least a corpse is under cremation any time of the day. The Hindu genealogy registers at Varanasi are kept here.
