Kasi Viswanathji ...a swayambhu murthi and a jyothirlingham, The moment you enter - you feel HIS presence there... One should go for the darshan during early morning (4.30 am - for the Mangala Aarthi) and at 9.45 pm (for the Shayana Arthi)... Har Har Mahadeva

Shri Kashi Vishwanth is one if the oldest temple in the world. It is said that Varanasi city is the garden area of Lord Shiva & Mata Parwati. Varanasi City is situated between Varuna ghat & Assi Ghat.

In normal days you can enter and touch the Lord Shiva but I’m not sure about Navratri I think during Navratri due to heavy crowd they won’t allow any one to touch.
