Kashi Yatra Map


The basic interpretation of the ‘Kashi Yatra’ is, a visit to the holy place and bathe in the holy Ganges. Devotees also have the darshan of Lord Vishwanath and perform holy rites to satisfy the souls of their ancestors. To most South Indians, the yatra starts with a visit to Rameshwaram. The devotees collect sand from there and then lead to the Triveni Sangam in Allahbad. From the confluence of three holy rivers - Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati - they collect water and then while returning, the bathe the idol of Lord with that sacred water in Rameshwaram. In this manner, the significance and ways of worshipping differ a little.


    Kasha, the holiest place for Hindus, has also faced many attacks from 1033 to 1669 A.D. Temples were brutally demolished and the Muslims built their Masjids. But the immense faith and courage of the Hindus, helped the beautiful and glorious place to develop. In 1777 A.D., Ahilyabai Holkar built the Kashi Vishweshwar Temple. From 1785 A.D., the development of other temples near Kashi was undertaken by the then King and his son. Thus, the Kashi we see now is owed to many people who have helped.
