India is known to be a land of life-giving rivers. From Ganges to Yamuna, Narmada, Godavari, Indus and others, these rivers are not only considered eternal sources of water buy they are also worshipped as Goddesses in diverse cultures. Alike rivers, the story of various River Ghats (Banks) is as historic as the river itself.

Millions of people from different corners of the globe come here to experience the sanctity and vibrancy of these rivers by visiting these ghats. They get surprised when they come across the dilapidated condition of these ghats. Solid waste, liquid waste, paan stains, silt and garbage from households pose a big threat to the sacredness of our holy rivers.

‘Save Our Ghats’ is a campaign by Come to India, and aims at protecting and rebuilding the vivacity of these river ghats on a long-term basis. This includes cleaning and beautification of ghats and making them look tidy and useful for all.



 

# Why our ghats matter?

Whether it is to take a holy bath, perform ritual or even walk alongside the river, our ghats serve as a gateway to rivers. They are steps leading to river banks to facilitate safe-bathing. On various occasions, fairs are organized where hundreds of people gather to celebrate various festivals.
As these ghats are the first touchpoints to rivers, they can become a major source of water pollution if not managed properly. Though the state and central government has taken several initiatives to bring back the life to these ghats, there’s a lot that needs to be done.

 

# The Project Keshi Ghat

Keshighat is a popular ghat on the river Yamuna in Vrindavan, the land of Lord Krishna. The ghat holds special significance in the hearts of local people who come here to take the holy bath. 

Being one of the spectacular ghatsin Vrindavan,KeshiGhat has been ornated with the eye-catching stone work and is accompanied by Madanmohan Temple which stands beautifully in the background.

Despite hundreds of local people and tourists visiting this ghat, the overall condition of the ghat is not up to the mark. We, at Come To India, pledge to make a difference to the ghat by giving it a cleaner and tidier look through “KeshiGhat Project”

This ambitious project is backed by a steadfast commitment to bring life back to our pristine river ghats in a sustainable way.
