Golden Temple (Kashi Vishwanath), Varanasi

(3.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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. You can enter the temple sanctum only when the chief officiating priest finishes performing his religious functions. Certain occasions host million visitors, so security measures can get very rigorous.
