Kashi Vishwanath Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva.In the temple is enshrined the Jyotirlinga of Shiva, Vishweshwara or Vishwanatha.Vishweshwara Jyotirlinga has a very special and unique significance in the spiritual history of India. Tradition has it that the merits earned by the darshan of other jyotirlinga scattered in various parts of India accrue to devotee by a single visit to Kashi Vishwanath Temple. Deeply and intimately implanted in the Hindu mind, the Kashi Vishwanath Temple has been a living embodinent of our timeless cultural traditions and highest spiritual values.
