- New Vishwanath temple, also known as Birla temple, situated in premises of Benaras Hindu University . In 1930s, Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya (founder of Benaras Hindu University)wished to replicate Shri Kashi Vishwanath Mandir in the campus. The Birla family (famous industrialist group) undertook the construction and foundation was laid in March 1931 and it took 35 years to complete the construction. The temple is one of the tallest in India (total height 253 feet) and its tower is the tallest in the world. As temple is situated in university campus, its surroundings are quite pleasant and away from hustle bustle of the city, which makes it a tourist hot-spot. Do not forget to try cold coffee with ice-cream at Tripti caffe.
A beautiful quiet place where one can learn about different gods of Hindu religion.
