Top Sight Seeing Places To Visit in Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh) in 2023

Kashi Vishwanath temple
1. Kashi Vishwanath Mandir
The famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple is the primary and perhaps the most prominent place to visit in Varanasi. It is one of most popular Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Shiva and is located on Varanas' Vishwanath Gali on the western side of the holy river Ganga. It is one of the twelve forthcoming Jyotirlingas. The deity has a name after the title 'owner of the world'.


2. Assi Ghat
Another common tourist attraction in Varanasi is Asi Ghat. Morning or evening arti is the most ideal time to visit the ghat, as it provides an incredible blessed experience.

3. Ashok Pillar
The famous pillar features four life-size lions sitting back to back on a drum-shaped abacus decorated with wheels in relief, as well as four animals: a horse, a bull, a lion, and an elephant. It was built by Ashoka the Great after he switched to Buddhism.


4. Bharat Mata Mandir
Bharat Mata Mandir is the next must-see attraction. It is India's first and one of the few buildings dedicated to Bharat Mata, the living embodiment-diety of the nation India, and is located on the Mahatma Gandhi Kashi Vidyapith campus. It was originally built in 1936 by Babu Shiv Prasad Gupta, an iconic freedom fighter. The temple, which lacks a deity, has a large relief map of undivided India. For obvious reasons, the temple is at its finest during national holidays.


5. Sankat Mochan Mandir
The Sankat Mochan Mandir, devoted to the great trouble-destroyer monkey god Hanumana of the great Indian epic Ramaya, holds a special place in India's spiritual centre. The main idol has been decorated with marigold flowers. Shri Madan Mohan Malaviya, one of the country's first and foremost educators and freedom fighters, built the temple. The temple should be visited during Hindu festivals.


6. Kanaka Durga Mandir
The last must-see location on this list is Kanaka Durga Mandir, which is devoted to the great warrior goddess Durga. The site of this temple is said to be located where Durga, according to legend, killed the demon Mahishasur.
