A historically relevant spot, Raj Ghat in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh state of India, is one of the many ghats used to be an important ferry ghat in the 19th century. The excavations made by the Archaeological Survey of India at Raj Ghat discovered a variety of terracotta human and animal figurines which led light on the cultural and political history of Varanasi from the Sunga to the Gahadaval times.

The findings from this place also include 300 seals and tokens alongside several earthenware pots, coins, beads, ornaments and other objects of domestic use.

Lying to the south of the Dashashwamedh Ghat, Raj Ghat is exactly located on the road from Varanasi to Mughal Sarai Railway junction.
