Kashi Vishwanath Temple-A place to Immerse in Devotion
Another gem in Varanasi, Kashi Vishwanath Temple is a place that you must visit. Also known as the Golden Temple due to its 800kg plating on the tower (shikhara), Kashi Vishwanath Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Maharani Ahilyabai Holkar of Indore constructed this temple in 1780. The Kashi Vishwanath Temple is one of the top 5 visited temples in India. The oldest temple in India has been mentioned in several Holy Scriptures. The temple has a Shivalinga, which is believed to be one of the twelve Jyotirlinga, the fiery pillar of light. The structure dates to the 18th century and thousands of devotees from all around the world visit this temple to perform an Abhishekam to the sacred Jyotirlingam. The intricate carvings add to the beauty of the place.
