Photographer's Note

This ghat is named after the famous Goddess Lalita (one of the incarnation of Goddess Durga) in Kashi and also in Prayag. The well known lingam of Ganga Kesava and shrines of Gangatitya, Kasi Devi, Lalita Devi and Bhagirath Tirtha are affiliated to this site. People believe that a glimpse of Lalita Devi brings the same reward as circumnavigating the entire world. At the top of the ghat, close to the Nepali Ghat, lies the Nepali Temple, a replica of Pashupatinath Temple which was built in 1843 under the patronage of Rajendra Sah, king of Nepal and assumed that the lingam there replicates the famous Pasupatisvara at Kathmandu. The temple has some wooden carving of the erotic scenes, and all the four gateways and doors are fully decorated with geomagnetic architectural frame. The ghat also enshrines the Lalita Gauri Temple, thronged by women devotees for prosperity of the family.
This ghat is one of the most venerated ghats of the Kashi for the devotees from various corners of the country.
It is considered that, it is a favorite ghat for all the painters and photographers to catch natural scenes in their paintings and cameras. People celebrate their local festivals including the musical parties and other favorite moments at this ghat.
