Hello Kasia,
I attended only once an Aarti ceremony and that was in Pokhara, Nepal.
If I understand correctly, visitors go with small boats to the ghats. As we see in the WS.
I was never in Varanasi and thought back to an old story of someone else. That person had taken pictures from a relatively large boat (which could accommodate a whole group of tourists) and that seemed to me such a very tourist experience. I think it would be better and much less disturbing to simply go with a skipper in a small boat.
Splendid and very colourful main picture with the women preparing the ceremony.
Best regards, Paul

Default To PaulVDV: Ghats

Thank you for your kind words Paul!
You can also walk along the bank and visit the ghats on the way. I did that too and it's interesting as well.
Best wishes
