Hindus in India worship the River Ganges as a goddess, and each evening in Varanasi, the ceremony of Aarti is performed at the Dashashwamedh Ghat. Either from the ghat or from the waterside in a boat, you'll witness this tradition, which features precise choreography involving rituals performed by several priests, accompanied by the sound of bells, drums, cymbals, and Sanskrit mantras.
