Asi Ghat in Varanasi

Asi Ghat is located at the southern end of Varanasi at the confluence of Asi River and Ganga River. Thousands of devotees take holy dip here and then offer prayers to a beautiful Shivling consecrated under a peepal tree. Another Shivling that is worshipped here is that of Asisangameshwar – Shiva as the lord of confluence.

As per Puranas, Goddess Durga threw her sword here after killing Demons Shumba and Nishumba.

Tulsidas wrote the Ramcharitmanas here.
