Gangaur Ghat is treat location for all the photo capturing maniacs, as one can capture the beauty of old city in one frame. The view of sunset and sunrise from the Ghat is just heavenly.

Near the Ghat resides Bagore Ki Haveli that holds a historic significance and must be visited for experiencing the culture of Rajasthan.

Gangaur Ghat received its name from the famous festival of Mewar: Gangaur Festival.

In the Gangaur Festival, the idols of Gan (Lord Shiva) and Gauri (Goddess Parvati) are preached for few days, and on the last day of Gangaur, these idols are taken to the Gangaur Ghat with a huge procession.

Women get all dressed up with traditional costumes and jewelry, and henna on their hands and head to the Ghat for the pooja and the procession of the idols.

The idols are loaded on boats from the ghat and taken to the main boat of Gangaur in the lake for future customs.

Also the ghat serves a vital role in other festivals like Jal Jhulni Ekadashi, Navratri and Ganesh Chathurthi, as the idols are immersed in the Lake Pichola from this particular ghat.

MUST KNOW THINGS

  • Take a two-wheeler or walk to access the location, as the roads in the old city are a bit congested and can make your four-wheeler create a hassle on the scene.
  • No proper seating is established on the Ghat, but one can make themselves comfortable on the stairs installed on the Ghat that take you to the water.
  • Ghat remains crowded during festivals.
