Manikarnika Ghat 4.5


The ghat has been mentioned in the literatures of 5th century. When Lord Shakti sacrificed herself in fire during a ritual conducted by her father to humiliate Lord Shiva, Lord Shiva took her burning body to Himalaya where he wept for several year with the body. Lord Vishnu decided to end the sorrow and cut the body into 51 pieces that fell on the earth. The place where Shakti’s earring fell is called Manikarnika Ghat. According to another legend, Shiva’s earring fell to the earth when he was ferociously dancing and the spot became Manikarnika Ghat.

In the story of King Harish chandra, the one who never lies, Yama took the king as a slave and made him work in this ghat. When his wife brought his dead son for cremation, he stood by his duty and refused to cremate unless she paid the taxes. The ghat was later rebuilt in 19th century by the king of Awadh.
