A memorable experience in Chitrakoot is the evening arti at Ram Ghat that should not be missed. The purohits (priests) chant and ring bells in unison, and the entire atmosphere reverberates with spiritual energy; a trance-like state descends on the pilgrims gathered here, and only the sound of the chants is heard across the entire ghat. The priests also hold a huge flaming diya or earthen pot, offering prayers to Lord Rama. The fire symbolises purification of the soul. The surface of the river seems to come alive before your eyes, with the flames reflected in the gentle rise and fall of the waves. A daily evening ritual, the arti session offers a surreal and cathartic experience to everyone present.
