Situated in the ancient city of Kashi, on the banks of the holy river Ganga, the Kashi Vishwanath temple is mentioned in old scriptures such as the Skanda Purana and Kashi Kanda. The temple has three domes covered with gold!
Dedicated to the Lord Shiva, this temple is as old as time itself. Despite being plundered and destroyed multiple times by invaders, the city and the temple are great examples of strength and resilience. The structure seen today, was built by the great Rani Ahilya Bai Holkar, queen of Indore. It is said that the chhatra on top of the dome is wish-fulfilling.
Revered as one of the 12 Jyotirlingas the temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva – the keeper of the city. The word Kashi comes from the word Kas, which literally means ‘to shine’. It is also believed that the Lord Himself stayed here for some time – hence the city earns a reverence among devotees.
