The community of Banganga was first established in the 1100's and later rebuilt during the 1700's. During the British rule over India, Dhobi (washermen/washerwomen) Ghats (the stone on which clothes are washed) become more and more prominent. Dhobi Ghats (a common place where clothes are washed) today basically serve as a cheaper version of laundramats. Inhabitants of regions close to Banganga will commonly send their clothing to Dhobi Ghats within Banganga to wash their clothes. Many families throughout the community earn a living by being washermen/washerwomen. There are a total of 3 Dhobi Ghats throughout the community.
