Assi Ghat

You'll find Assi Ghat where the Ganges River meets the river Assi. It's located at the extreme southern end of the main ghats, and hence it's not as crowded and chaotic as some of the other ghats. However, it is an important ghat for Hindus. Pilgrims bathe there before worshiping Lord Shiva, in the form of hugelingam under a nearby pipal tree. There are quite a few interesting shops and decent cafes (head to Vaatika Cafe for pasta and pizza with a great outlook) in the area. The ghat is a popular place for long staying travelers. Dasaswamedh Ghat is a 30 minute walk away, along the ghats.
