Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple is one of the famous Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Shiva. Many stories are still unrevealed & untold.This city is also called Kashi in ancient time, hence the temple is called Kashi Vishwanath Temple.I stand in a queue around 1hr, you have to face 2 security checks to get entry inside the temple, however, a policeman was very cooperative & hat's off to them, they were managing the pilgrim's queue very well.Restricted items inside the temple:-Mobile phone, Camera, leather items, harmful weapons etc, but don't worry inside Vishwanath Gali every shop has locker facilities to store your important items.Many other temples were also present inside the Kashi Vishwanath Temple & one of the famous temple called Maa Anpurna Temple & this temple has also its own importance in Hindu religion.After completion of my puja, I was very hungry & now its time to relax my tummy, I did my lunch & that was amazing in taste, I basically prefer 'Thalis' If I'm going for a trip.Why I prefer 'Thalis'?To taste local foods of that particular city & that would be the great option.
To our surprise our third amigo had 3-4 of his amigos as well along with him and they had quite a bit Jugad over their so we had our VIP darshan. Photography is not allowed inside all the temples in Banaras so i cannot show the beauty of the temple but trust me even after seeing the photographs you would not have been able to witness it until you personally go and feel the same. In last few years the temple has been given more space with some new additions and systematic management which had added to its peaceful atmosphere. The main shrine is made of half gold and half silver from outside (beware of the monkeys while standing in the queue).
Varanasi being the Mecca for Hindus and has many auspicious temples. Cameras wont be allowed in any temple but one must experience the positivity embraced there.Do visit the Kashi Viswanath temple and Kaal Bhairav Mandir (oldest shiva temple in Varanasi) both dedicated to lord Shiva.
Another day, and I visited the famous temples located in this ethni-city. 1. Kashi Vishwanath Temple:It is one of the most worshiped temple in India. It is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is known as one of the twelve Jyotrilinga's. The vishwanath means ruler of the universe. Varanasi is also known as Kashi. Hence, the name Kashi Vishwanath Temple.2. Sankat Mochan Mandir:This temple is dedicated to Lord Hanuman. Sankat Mochan is his other name which means he who takes away all the troubles. Hence the name Sankat Mochan.3. Kaal Bhairav Mandir:One of the oldest temple in Varanasi, dedicated to one of the forms of Lord Shiva. The word 'kaal' means both death and fate. This temple is very famous between Hindu pilgrims.
Immediately after my breakfast I headed for the famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple. On my way to the temple road I saw small neat cozy lassi shop. The lassi made there is hand made without any mixers and grinders. The topping of malai is just like an icing on the cake. Too yummy.. :) I couldn't resist myself and had 2 cups of it.
