Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Have grown up in this place, was at 400 m distance from my native house.
Its a magical place, a bit less crowded... great for passing time, may be sitting at any of the top point somewhere...
watching the long view to both Ramnagar, Chetsingh forts & also the Malviya bridge along-with Opaar (Retei)...
Great for wide-angle shots of Gangaji...!!!

This ghat is one of the last you will pass if you are walking south along the banks for the Ganges. It is about 20 minutes walk from Dasaswamedh Ghat - the main boat departure point ghat and site of the evening Aarti. You will know when you arrive here because instead of steps down to the Ganges, there is a large flat paved area populated by passive but huge cows. There black buffalo are very placid and you can go up and stroke them. Children may ask you to buy candles to set free in the river. Many boatmen live around here and you may be approached to catch a boat back up the Ganges to the start of your "ghat walk". Boats from here are very reasonable, I caught one for 110Rs to take me back up past all the Ghats in time to watch the evening Ganga Aarti ceremony. My driver told me about the ghats as I passed and ensured I had a good position to watch the evening ceremony. At Shivala Ghat there was more street art from French artist Invader.

The good thing about this ghat is that it's away from the ghats where cremations take place. Boats are readily available for a ride. It has a non-crowded passage connecting it towards the outside.
Highlight- Suryauday Haveli, a heritage boutique hotel is on Shivala Ghat and was a great authentic stay experience.

This place is perfectly clean ghat in Varanasi and there are a few hotels nearby with rooms facing the river. The access via road is limited and the nearest ghat where one can park the car is Assi Ghat or on the main road about 150 meters away.

The only thing one misses is a nice cafe to have a tea/ coffee on the river bank.

A Beautiful Ghat of Benaras/Varanasi. I have been visiting Varanasi for long. But in recent times, I find all the ghats of Varanasi are clean to the best, effect of our Prime Minister, Sri Narendra Modi. My humble Salute

I had an opportunity to visit Shivala Ghat this summer along with my younger brother with whom I went.
As my brother had to give his JEE MAINS exams I thought this would be the best place in the city away from the choas and other noisy ghats in the city.
Spent 2 to 3 hrs and meanwhile my brother got relieved of all the stress he had. A must visit ghat in Varanasi if you want some quiet time.

Shivala Ghat is toward the end of the Varanasi Ghats. Compared to the other Ghats, there isn't much activity here. At sunrise, people gather for their morning Puja, groups of women sit around talking and having tea. There is also some prayer activity at the tiny Shiva temple. People bathe in the river all day long, sharing the space with water buffalo.
If you are looking for a respite from the over the top Varanasi experience, this is a nice place to go to. Sunrise on the Ganges is a must do.

The ghat is less popular (as compare to others) but has its own importance. The ghat has less crowd but good to have calm place. Nice point to feel the nature deeply.
