Gai Ghat

Gai Ghat, also known as Gaya Ghat, is one of the important spots in Varanasi. It has been found mentioned in the Grivana Manjari, a 17th century text.

It was the southern limit of the city during the 12th century. The highlight is a huge sculpted figure of a stone cow, from which the ghat got its name 'Gai' (Hindi term for cow).

This ghat is also famous for the images of Bagesvari Devi, Nagesvari Devi, Mukarnirmalika Devi and Samhara Bhairava.
