New Kashi Vishwanath Temple (Birla Mandir) , Varanasi

Dear Divine Souls ,

After visiting Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple I came to my final destination in my auto tour of kashi i.e. New Kashi Vishwamanth Temple or Birla Mandir, Varanasi .

New Kashi Vishwanath Temple or Birla Mandir

The New Kashi Vishwanath temple of Varanasi is located in the huge premises of the Benaras Hindu University (BHU). It is also called the Birla Mandir  as the famous industrialists family of India, the Birlas constructed it. The New Vishwanath Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is a replica of the Original Kashi Vishwanath temple which Aurangzeb destroyed. The temple is built in white marble stone  and was planned by Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya,  the founder of the Benaras Hindu University ( BHU). The most important characteristic of the New Kashi Vishwanath temple is that it is open to people from all castes and religions.

We enter the huge gate of BHU and after around a run of km inside we reach New Kashi Vishwanath temple

In the entrance itself there is a huge fervor and lot of rush among the devotees. Out the entrance there are lot of good food joints having varieties from all parts of India which are more frequented by university students. But I would suggest my readers to have some supper from here as the quality and taste here is quite good.

New Vishwanath Temple (Birla Mandir)  is made up of the marble stone and its construction was completed in 1965. The tower of the Birla Mandir is known as the tallest temple tower. Even it is taller than Qutub Minar in the New Delhi. New Kashi Vishwanath Mandir is matchless and ostentatious temple in the Varanasi. The color of  the temple from outside is white and pink in color.
