One of the most famous Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Shiva, Golden Temple (Kashi Vishwanath) stands on the western bank of the Ganges. Destroyed and reconstructed many times during its history, the latest edition was built by the Maratha monarch in 1780, with three domes made up of pure gold.

There are several temples in pregnant l secure the main being dedicated to Shiva Om namah Shivaya
