  • Best , if you are coming first , auto driver or cab Driver will bring you in this Temple, as both Temple having same name. Well connected, maintained, Nice, beautiful and spacious temple. Foods stalls are also nearby. Sufficient parking space is available. Sitting arrangement are provided. Best feeling once after visiting the Holy Temple.
  • This is one of the best holy place where I always love to go with my friends and my family. As this is the place of God Shiva, I can always feel peace here. This is the place where I can enjoy the nature. From my pint of view, this is one of the best place to visit in Varanasi.
  • This temple is also known as Birla Temple dedicated to lord Shiva. Cherishing memories for life time. Being a BHU product, I used to go everyday with my friends during my college days.
