These 5 places are Kardmeshwar, Bhimchandi, Rameshwar, Shivpur, and Kapil-dhara. The procession of Panch Koshi Parikrama starts from the Manikarnika Ghat at Varanasi and ends at the same ghat. Pilgrims and locals in Varanasi wake up very early in the morning and start their parikrama after taking a holy bath in the sacred water of river Ganga at the Manikarnika Ghat.
