  • 瓦拉那西是恆河聖城 有識之士見印度人自古至今不斷的種種痛苦紛擾 在瓦拉那西市區蓋了這棟建築 建築外觀極不像寺廟 進門不見神像 祭台 唯一見到的圖畫是濕婆神之妻帕爾瓦蒂 她被稱為雪山女神 她所居的喜馬拉雅山就是恆河的源頭 恆河是印度人的聖河也是母親河 因此 這建築被稱為恆河母親廟 一樓地板上只有一幅大印度地圖 包含不同宗教信仰的孟加拉 斯里蘭卡 戰火時斷時續的喀什米爾 其寓意應該是希望印度能超越以往...  more »

  • Very nice place Bharat mata mandir varanasi
  • One of very underrated place to visit in Varanasi. This place is good to explore things from independence . Also there is a huge map with topological feature inside . A must visit for explorers !
  • Though there are not enough people visiting this place but this is one of the great memorials of our independence struggle. It doesn't contains any idol but a map of india is there in the centre of the hall.
  • The temple has a scaled map of the subcontinent indicating the physical features which is rare considering most of the temples have an idol. The temple was built before India's independence and thus assumes importance in more than one way. The physical features on the map are built to scale, which is a commendable task considering the technologies developed at that time. Moreover, the idea of constructing such a temple would certainly be to invoke a sense of patriotism. Unfortunately, we have failed to maintain this heritage as several carvings on the walls are erased and the surroundings are not so clean, and thus rating it one star less.
  • Its the only temple in India which shows the Mother India as a Goddess. a Very beautiful large map of Undivided India and a statue of Mother India, along with the sayings and lots of old scribes printed on the wall. One must visit there if coming to Varanasi for its Heritage.
