Known as the place where mankind was birthed, Kanpur's Brahmavart Ghat is a holy site you have to visit when in the city. Revered as the place where it all started, the Brahmavart Ghat is one of the biggest pilgrimage sites for the devotees of Lord Brahma.

The Holy Brahmavart

Kanpur's Bithoor houses some of the most religiously sacred and significant places in the Hindu culture. The town has been the epicentre of several mythological and religious happening, hence making it one of the most visited in Kanpur.

So when in Kanpur and looking for some much needed spiritual healing, the Brahmavart Ghat is a must visit spot. This ghat or river bank is said to hold mystical powers as it is said to be the place where mankind was birthed.

The Hindus believe the ghat to be a place where Lord Brahma lived before man inhabited this world. It is here that Brahma Ji is revered to have installed a Shiva Linga which, to the day is worshipped as the Brahmeshwar Mahadeva. It is here that Lord Brahma is believed to have started mankind making man with clay and all the righteousness in the world.

A horse shoe is also embedded on the banks of the shore here, believed to have fell off from his horse before going on an Ashvamedha Yagna. It is believed that the entire earth rotates on the axis of this horse shoe. Due to its religious significance a small temple dedicated to Lord Brahma has also been constructed on the ghats for the devotees to come and offer their respects.
