HANUMAN GHAT, Is the site of a new temple built by the large south Indian community. Considered by many to be the birthplace of the fifteenth-century Vaishnavite saint Vallabha, who was instrumental in the resurgence of the worship of Krishna. Hanuman Ghat, earlier known as Ramesvaram Ghat, is situated at a holy spot famed as Juna Akhara in Varanasi. Legends say that this Ghat was built by Lord Ram himself and hence this Ghat is dedicated to Lord Hanuman, the most favored disciple of Lord Ram. This Ghat is an impressive attraction among the wrestlers and body builders as Lord Hanuman is a synonym of strength.
