Massacre Ghat alias Nana Rao Ghat, earlier known as Satti Chaura
Ghat, is one of the most important tourist attraction of the city situated
in the cantonment area on the right bank of the river Ganga. The place
has become significant in the Indian History since the revolt of 1857,
popularly known as Sepoy Mutiny or the first war of Indian Independence.
Around 300 British men, women and children were murdered at the ghat and
whose who escaped from there were later killed at the Bibighur Massacre.
As the revolt was believed to be led by Nana Sahib of Peshwa, the Satti
Chaura Ghat was renamed as Nana Rao Ghat and later got recognized as Massacre
Ghat. A white temple was built here which gives the place a peaceful atmosphere.
