New Kashi Vishwanath Temple Varanasi

Shri Vishwanath Mandir also referred to as Vishwanath Mandir and also know as New Kashi Vishwanath Temple, is one among the foremost popular temples and largest attractions for tourists in Varanasi.

It is also referred to as the Birla temple because it had been built by Birla Family. The temple was planned by Pt. Madan Mohan Malaviya (Founder of BHU). The temple is opened for all religions. The temple is found on the Benaras Hindu University campus and is devoted to Lord Shiva.
Kashi Vishwanath Mandir was destroyed repeatedly in 1194 by Qutb-ud-din Aibak, between 1447-1458 by Hussain Shah Sharqi, then in 1669 CE by Aurangzeb. Then In 1930, Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya had planned to duplicate Shri Kashi Vishwanath Mandir within the Benaras Hindu University and therefore the Birla family take responsibility to develop this temple and completed it in 1966. It took 35 years to complete the work.

New Kashi Vishwanath Temple is found around 1.5 KM inside the campus of Benaras Hindu University (from the most gate). It is around 3 KM from Durga Maa Temple, 7 KM from old Kashi Vishwanath Temple, and around 11 KM from Varanasi Cantt Station.
