Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple reviews
A cultural heritage of Hindu community. Very renowned and respected religious place. Here since long, been destroyed by invaders, and again rebuild. What is unique, it shares it's boundary wall to a mosque, giving a beautiful example of India's communal diversity and secular spirit and mutual harmony. *Pictures aren't allowed*
work is in progress... it will take time.. but once corridor is completed it will worth seeing it.. lakhs of people are coming these days to worship Lord Vishwanath.. What i saw was that the golden plate which is covered on the main temple is gone black.. trust must take care of such things..
