Lala Mishra Ghat was the first stone ghat and is surmounted by a fine house. The well-finished, fluted stone columns at both ends of the building give it a very imposing appearance. The place had been acquired by the Raja of Rewa and is sometimes known by his name, but in India old names live long. New names may be given, but the old ones hold their own. What has been, is, and will be for many a generation.
