Electric Crematorium


"Electric Crematorium At Lal Ghat"

The Government of Uttar Pradesh constructed the Electric Crematorium at Lal Ghat just besides the main burning ghat which is Manikarnika Ghat. This was done to reduce water and air pollution, and to effectively keep up with the increasing number of cremations that take place in the holy city. This venture has been largely unsuccessful because Hindus prefer the traditional funeral pyre where the body is consigned to flames. Still, the twin antenna of the Electric Crematorium stand out against the rest of the old buildings along the riverfront.
