Prahalad Ghat at Varanasi is named after the devotee of Lord Vishnu i.e. Prahalad, who was protected by Lord Vishnu from his cruel father Hiranyakashyap. According to legend described in the 61st chapter of Kashi Khand, Lord Vishnu said to sage Bindu that he will reside in Prahlad Tirtha as Prahlad Keshav. It is believed that after bathing at Prahalad Ghat and worshipping Prahalad Keshav all the wishes and desires of devotees are fulfilled. Devotee should worship Prahlad Keshav for the prosperity of unusual devotion.
