Also known as the Golden Temple, it is dedicated to Lord Shiva, the presiding deity of the city. Varanasi is said to be the point at which the first jyotirlinga, the fiery pillar of light by which Shiva manifested his supremacy over other gods, broke through the earth's crust and flared towards the heavens. To reach here, tourists have to pass through Kashi Vishwanath Gali, famous for its shops selling pooja items and sweets. There’s also a popular ladies corner in its alleyway that tourists explore for affordable shopping. Adjacent to Kashi Vishwanath Mandir are Annapoorna Temple, Dundiraj Vinayak and Gyanwapi which is regularly frequented by pilgrims.
