Tulsi Ghat : Varanasi
Tulsi slaves used to live in the best days of the Mughal period in Benares; during his time, Akbar constructed several temples and great places of Tulsi mentioned in his literature. He was dedicated to the city and lived in many places in Kashi. Unlike Kabirdas, Tulsidas was not so unpleasant about the city Kashi where he lived. In many of his works, he praised Lord Shiva and the holy city Kashi so that salvation or so-called salvation can be obtained for people on earth. Tulsi Das died in 1623 at the age of eighty years and his ashes were flown to the Ganges. Tulsi Das is said to live in Varanasi at many places: Panchganga Ghat, Hanuman gate, and Gopal Mandir - the city in the heart of all - and, finally, near Ashi Ghat, in a house right next to the river. The Ghat is now called Tulsi Ghat, and there is still a temple in his house situated at the top of the ghat, where the sandal of the great poet is kept. Tulsi Ghat is one of the most important Ghats of Varanasi, this place was found in the 16th century by the legendary poet Mahakavi (a great poet) of Hindu mythology Tulsidas, who wrote 'Ramitirthanasa', the largest epic of history in Varanasi. According to mythology, when Tulsi's manuscript fell into the river Ganges, it did not sink and floats instead. It is also believed that Ramlila (the story of the life of Lord Rama) was first staged. Lord Rama's temple is built on the Basin Tulsi Ghat. Many of Tulsi Das's remains are preserved on Tulsi Ghat.
