The reconstruction happening all around Kashi Vishwanath is a disaster. The government is butchering history.

This should be the first reason to visit Varanasi. Some facts which I experienced during my visit 1. One has to walk long to visit the temple as vehicles are stopped after a certain point. Most of the walk will be without the shoe. 2. The Temple area is always crowded but in the evening one can observe the maximum crowd as Ganga aarti also takes place. 3. Inside the temple one can buy the prasad prepared by the temple committee so no need to buy the sub-quality product from outside the temple. Even the milk is also available for pouring. 4. Currently construction is going on and most of the space is covered so need to be careful while visiting. 5. No need to hire panda or guide to visit the temple. 6. Most of the personal accessories are not allowed inside the temple and need to be deposited at the lockers available outside the temple. These are belts, purse wallet, watch made of leather and mobile phones or cameras or smartwatch. 7. There are plenty of typically Varanasi foods available outside the temple.

The temple complex is under construction with exciting plans to benefit future devotees. it is now easier to enter the main temple and also the annapoornesawari temple . The security personnel are vigilant to prevent crowding , insisting that everyone wears masks at all times. Definitely the place has tremendous vibrations due to centuries of worship and history .

since hundreds of people are going to the temple, the place is not clean. but it is full of piety, serenity and tranquility. beware of the pundits and touts. there is no crowd these days, and Darshan are easy. no huge lines.
