Another not to be missed Ghat in Varanasi is Assi Ghat. It is the Ghat located at the merging point of Assi River and River Ganga and is famous as the southernmost Ghat. The main attraction of this Ghat is the gigantic Lord Shiva Lingam fixed under a huge Peepal tree. Really, the charm of this idol is spell-bound and also serves as a reason for the tourist’s visit. The devotees first take bath in the river and then, came to this idol of Lord Shiva for worshipping. This mesmerizing Ghat shows its significance and popularity by the mentioning of its description in many of Puranas like Matsya Purana, Agni Purana, Kurma Purana and Padma Purana.
