Sethani Ghat- Tiled with stones is a 19th century construction along the banks of the river Narmada at Hoshangabad in Madhya Pradesh in India. It is one of the largest ghats in India. During Narmada Jayanti celebrations the ghat comes alive when thousands of people converge on the ghats and diyas are floated in the river. One of the most beautiful ghats you will find in central india.Probably the biggest ghat on river Narmada, and yes most happening place in the town.Narmada Jayanti celebration in the month of feb is one the major event and big center of attraction.


The ghat was built after generous contributions by Jankibai Sethani from the Sharma family in Hoshangabad after devotees complained to her about the difficulty in getting to the river, Hence the ghat is named after her. It is one of the few examples of public infrastructure built through private funding in India. A photo of Narmada from Sethani ghat can be seen in the book Jungle Rahe Taki Narmada Bahe!, by Pankaj Srivastava.
