  • As a foreigner you pay 600 RPI and are rushed through witn a minimum of explanation by a ‘guide’ who hardly speaks english. A total rip off. Dont go.

  • Kashi Vishwanath is one of the oldest temples of Lord Shiva. It's a perfect place to spend your time peacefully and pray. You will experience really good vibes inside and around the temple. Temple is connected to the famous ghats of Varanasi. You can get some mouthwatering food near the temple and one can enjoy shopping in the nearby market. It's a must-visit place for everyone.
  • This place is the heart of the city Varanasi.one of the oldest temples of Lord Shiv.You will experience really good vibes inside and around the temple.I can say that, when I went, after the corridor formation, it was a fabulous experience. I was stunned to see the priceless view of the temple.I would appreciate the work, because there is a multi level bike parking at Godolia and charges is only 20 rs per 3 hours.
