At a distance of 9 km from Jabalpur Junction, Gwarighat is a bathing ghat situated on the banks of the holy Narmada River in the Gwarighat suburb of Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh. It is one of the many sacred ghats on Narmada River banks, and among the important places to visit in Jabalpur.

Gwarighat serves as a famous ghat of Narmada River. The presence half-submerged temple dedicated to Maa Narmada made this place even more special. Although half of the temple always drowns in water, it does not stop the temple's devotees from offering daily prayers and holding beautiful aarti in the evening which is attended by a huge number of people. Hindus perform their cremation rites here due to the presence of Narmada Sidh Kund, near Uma Ghat, wherein renowned Rishis performed Tapas.

The most beautiful ghat of the sacred Narmada river and famous for its temples such as Shri Ramlala Mandir, Ganesh Mandir, Gurdwara, and Jain temple. 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. If you want to indulge in some activity you can also try boating. The calm waters of the Narmada River make for a great boating experience.

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.

Aarti Timings: 7 PM - 7.30 PM
