A group of priests daily in the evening at this ghat perform "Agni Pooja" (Worship to Fire) wherein a dedication is made to Lord Shiva, River Ganga (the Ganges), Surya (Sun), Agni (Fire), and the whole universe. Special aartis are held on Tuesdays and on religious festivals

Same celebration, different priests. I was quite impress to witness this religious ritual, not only for the ceremony itself, but also from the way worshipers were affected and the significant effect it had on them.
I found it interesting to present this solemn performance from a distant point of view, presenting the whole scene with spectators. Because of the darkness, all the attention goes to the priests, but the overview provides a sense of the place.
Have a nice weekend!

A great slice of religious awareness, interesting content and an excellent situation life image captured at a single moment in time and one that has a lot of significance for you. You've done well hand holding at that shutter speed. The composition is just fine, superb clarity depicting the warm colors against dark background. An excellent overall picture full of content, Congrats

a fine composition, with a tripod you may have got the starburst on the fire but you have managed this well by hand holding.

This I believe is the Aarti from the Ghat which is next to the Dwasaswamedh. I saw the Arrti here and photographed as well. A good distant view giving an overview of this ritual
