Harish Chandra Ghat

Harish Chandra Ghat

This ghat is name after a mythological King Harish Chandra, who once worked the cremation ground here for the preservance of truth and charity but at the end the Gods rewarded him and restored his lost thorn and his dead son to him.

This is one of the two cremation ghat, and some times referred as Adi Manikarnika (" the original creation ground"), still there exists Adi Manikarnika Tirtha. In 1986-87 an electric crematorium is opened here, how ever side-by-side funeral of wood-fire is continuing .

This also the seat of old Harampapa water – tirtha. At the top in the temples there are images of Harischandrsvara, Rohitesvara, Adi Manikarnikesvara & Vrddha Kedara. 1740 Narayana Diksit, a religious guru of pesavas renovated this ghat and made this partly pucca.
