New Kasi Vishwanath temple is popularly known as Birla Temple because it was constructed by Birla group. It is located in Banaras Hindu University and most of the University students come here to study. By this we can understand how peaceful the temple premises are.It is constructed with white marble stone and we can observe optimum neatness in the temple.

Old kasi temple at Varanasi, and new temple being constructed at Banaras Hindu University Campus which gives please devotional atmosphere, and Mahadev Shrine is very very nice, the temple is built with Marble stone widely, with green garden besides the temple. One who visits Kasi shall visit this temple also.

Temple is very much well maintain and clean though at time of our visit there is huge rush but crowd is very well maintain by security . One should must perform RUDRAABHISHEK inside the temple , this cost you only 2100 RS.

The inside of temple is a great work of hindu culture with many deities residing in the same temple. The place is also a good hangout for students of BHU with their loved... More

As this is a revered temple in our religion, I am afraid I can not give any objective review. Felt very blessed.

I visited BHU but it was simply awesome to see acres of land dedicated to education Madan Mohan Malaviya couldn't have imagined this will become a world class heritage place.The temple an exact replica of the original Kashi Vishwanath is clean,convenient for the students who want to pray peacefully if they want to avoid going far during exams.
