The Bengali Tola Riverside Walk



Bengali population from West Bengal has been flourishing in Varanasi since centuries. Large numbers of Bengali families have migrated to Varanasi and built their homes and temples on the riverside of the ever expanding city. Walking past the historic lanes, you reach Bengali Tola, the street inhabited by Bengalis who have built the shrines of Mother Goddess Kali in the locality where devotees from all over India come to offer their prayers and seek the blessings of Goddess. The walk ends with a dip in holy Ganges at the Dasashwamedh Ghat followed by the evening Aaarti (Prayer Ceremony). The event is a magical experience as it puts you in a trance and you forget all the worldly worries chanting the mantras in chorus with the huge gathering of devotees. As the Aarti ends, mud lamps are lighted and floated on leaves in the holy river which enthralls the visitors with its mesmerizing effect.
