The city of Jabalpur is located on the holy banks of River Narmada and on one end of this river, the Gwarighat is located. This ghat mainly serves as a place for doing after death rituals of Hindus and there are various Hindu temples situated on this ghat. There are also several ghats on the other ends of the river such as Tilwara Ghat and Jelehri Ghat. It is believed that if the ashes of the dead person are put in the river, his departed soul would find ultimate peace. Moreover, these ghats also offer a peaceful atmosphere to the people away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
