“O Solitude! If I must with thee dwell, Let it not be among the jumbled heap of murky buildings”.
( John Keats – English Romantic Poet. 1795-1821)

This building used to be kind of murky but it was painted recently with bright colours.
Vijayanagaram Ghat is located on the banks of the holy Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras), it was named after the erstwhile Vijayanagar princely state of South India.
The ruler of this princely state provided the funds for the construction of this ghat in 1890.
It is touching Vijayanagaram Ghat where are the temples dedicated to Nilakantha (Lord Shiva) and Nishpapeshvara.
Many pilgrims are stepping down this ghat in order to take dip in the holy waters of the Ganges or to worship in the nearby temples.
They use a passage under the house which is leading to the roads on the back.
