Ganga Ghat at Varanasi

Ganga Ghat at Varanasi

Ganga Ghat at Varanasi

Ganga Ghats are stone embankments or steps that lead people to the Ganges Riverfront. This site in Varanasi, the most sacred city in Hinduism, has up to 88 ghats or steps visited for various functions such as bathing, puja, and even cremation. As an important religious hub, Varanasi is also known for its various ghats and its appearances in many forms of art throughout history.

This Batik Painting on Cotton depicting Ganga Ghat tastefully depicts the site in its spiritual and aesthetic glory. Like the Goddess it is personified with, the Ganges River is a symbol of life, purity, and power since time immemorial. it is often depicted in art as a serene yet impactful scene, showing how the religious live up to and with the holiness of the river. In this painting, the palette used involves shades of red, purple, and yellow in signature Batik finish renders the image to look like it’s in the evening. But a closer look on the painting shows the Ghat bustling with activities as seen on the people on boats, taking a dip, or simply staying under parasols on the steps, which is a good depiction of the Ganga Ghat and the Ganges being part of the Hindu life no matter the time of day.

Ganga Ghat is often the subject of both religious and societal art in India and beyond. It will always be a focus of many art forms for as long as there is birth, living, and death, the very circle witnessed by the river itself. Exotic India has this painting and hundreds of others curated for anyone who wishes to have a piece of the culture in art. The Gange is perhaps the holiest witness to the life going on beyond its banks, and for as long as people live, it will remain a dear place of worship, life, and farewell for those who believe.

IAs a serious student and teacher of Bhagavad Gītā, Upaniṣad and Jyotiṣa I have found you have some good editions of English with sanskrit texts. Having texts of high quality with both is essential.   This has been a user friendly experience
