Gwarighat, a small and composed town located on the banks of the flourishing river Narmada, has become a popular tourist attraction today. This little town is a must-visit for all those planning a visit to Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh. Especially, the followers of Sikhism make sure to visit this place in Jabalpur as it has a holy significance for them.

Unlike other ghats in India, this ghat is not as crowded and during most parts of the year, you can even travel to this ghat to experience a peace of mind. During the evenings the entire ghat area transforms into a picture book setting as diyas and lamps light up around the river banks for the evening Aarti. This arti gives a similar feel like the Ganga Aarti in Haridwar.
While anyone can visit the Gwarighat in Jabalpur, this place is most suited for those who yearn for peace and tranquility. This is one of those places in Madhya Pradesh where you can find the perfect blend of spirituality and serenity. While it holds a lot of religious significance for the followers of Guru Nanak Devji and the followers of Sai Baba, many people who are looking for a quite place to relax their mind, body, and soul can also plan a trip to this Ghat.
Things to Do
You can sit on the banks of the river to just relax and see the water flow by. There is a Sikh temple on this ghat where you can sit and hear the gurbani to calm the restless soul.

Best Time to Visit

This is certainly the best time to visit at any particular day.
