Varanasi Ghats - Raja Ghat

Varanasi Ghats - Raja Ghat :
The Raja Ghat is located south of Dashaswamedh Ghat, between Babua Pandey Ghat and Kshameshwar Ghat, along the Ganges in Varanasi. Raja Ghat used to be a ferry ghat until 1 January 1887, when the Lord Duffrin Bridge was built for vehicular as well as rail traffic.
The Raja Ghat is very old and it is, in fact, mentioned in the Gahadavala inscription dating back to 1100AD.
