The Tulsi Manas temple is located on the banks of the Tulsi ghat. The famous Indian philosopher and writer, Tulsi Das constructed it post his travels across India to spread the heroic spirit of the Ramayana. He finished writing the Ramcharit Manas here, thus creating a body of work which helped contemporarize the Ramayana, a religious text of the Hindus. The place is very well maintained, made of white marble and offers a beautiful view of the river Ganga. It is accompanied by a 400 year old Akhada, which makes for an interesting visit too.

This temple is spacious and allows a lot of room to explore. A lot less crowded than the temples surrounding it.

The ideology in making this temple is truly appreciable and the way of mythological narration in the form of pictorial is just stupendous. On inside walls of temple are depicted by various episodes of Ram Charith Manas written by Goswamy Tulsida. Situated on Durgakund closer to Durga Mata temple, worth visiting place to explain kids about Ram Charith Manas epic.

Tulsi Manas Temple is one of the most visited places of Varanasi.  Built in the year 1964, it derives its name from the great saint poet of the 16th century, Tulsidas. The temple has been precisely devoted to Lord Ram.

Located near the much famous Durga Temple, the Tulsi Manas Temple is said to be constructed at the exact place where the Indian Epic “Ramcharitamanas” was written by Tulsidas. It is a very modern temple built in the shikhara style architecture with simple white marble and no ornate features.The absolute simplicity of the words that describe complex philosophies of life will leave you spellbound.  The temple structure stands amidst beautiful gardens and a pond that has different statues depicting different subjects from the epic.

The Tulsi Manas Temple is a place with a rich mythological heritage and is immersed in religious traditions and Hindu culture. The serene environment along with lush greenery around the temple provides immense peace to the visitor. Visit the temple for an divine experience that will take you to a different level of worship.

Timings: 5.30 am- 12 pm; 3.30 pm- 9 pm

Quick Tips:

Visit the temple during the Sawan mela in July-August when the whole temple is illuminated and gets a makeover.

Beware of the monkeys at the temple. Hold your belongings tightly.

Don’t miss out on the jhankis (tableau) at the first level that depict stories from Ramayana.

Bags and cameras are not allowed inside the temple.

The Tulsi Manas Mandir is built in 1964.
This temple is dedicated to Lord Ram..
This is one of the most famous temples in Varanasi and it is fully made up of white marble.
This temple is located very close to the famous Durga Devi temple in Varanasi..
It is also believed that this mandhir is built at the same place where Tulsidas wrote the epic Ramcharitamanasa.
There is a museum in the premises.. It has a rare collection of manuscripts of the Ramayana.
The beautifully maintained Garden and the pond outside the temple are really excellent..

Had visited this place around 42 years back and remembered it as a very huge temple, well now it didn't seem so large . It has ram charitra manas engraved on the marble adorning the wall.
