The bathing ghats of Kolkata, located along the Hooghly River, receive hoards of devotees who come to wash and make offerings each morning and evening. The Hooghly River is considered to be a branch of the holy Ganges River, and therefore auspicious.

Two of the most popular bathing ghats are the Babu ghat and Armenian ghat.
