New Vishwanath Temple is a replica of old Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple. Vishwanath means "Lord of the Universe" due to which it is dedicated to Lord Shiva (according to hindu mythology). It is one of the tallest temples in India. This temple was build by Birla Family and it took 35 years to complete. It's very easy to reach this temple whether you are a foreigner or a local, just book an autocart. Camera is prohibited in this temple but still i managed to captured some. The temple is fully surrounded with huge double layered garden and outside you will find few shops selling flowers for the devotees to worship and some shops on handicrafts.
As you will enter the garden, in the center you will find a black statue of Pt. Madan Mohan Malviya, founder of BHU. Further you will find a counter beside the entrance of second garden where people keep their footwears in order to honour the Lord. After entering the second garden you will find different types of people spending hours of time. Some are chilling with their friends and enjoying the day while some are doing Yoga and Meditation. On the rightside of the temple a small class of Yoga takes place every morning around 6 O'clock where you will find people of all ages. There are water fountains too. Some photoshoots also takes place. The environment is very peaceful, far from chaotic citylife and people are very friendly.
Now as you enter the temple you will recognise that it's mosty made of marbles and there are two floors. On ground floor as you will go straight there's a big Shiveling made of silver and a priest serving Him. This part of the temple is a bit croweded, campared to others. Here camera is stirctly prohibited. Then on it's right there's a statue of Nandi, considered to be a sacred bull, a gate- keeper and a vehicle of Lord Shiva. There's a believe that if you say your wish secretly into his ears it gets fullfiled and you will always find people saying a wish into his ears. Nonbelievers don't make fun of it and that's what i call it humanity. Then there are statues of Natraj, Panchmukhi Mahadev, Paravati, Ganesh and Hanuman.
