Aarti in Kashi Vishwanath Temple

Kashi Vishwanath Temple has most religious importance for the worship in the Hindu religion. Many great Hindu saints (like Adi Sankaracharya, Goswami Tulsidas, Ramakrishna Paramhansa, Swami Dayananda Saraswati, Swami Vivekananda, Gurunanak etc) had came to the Varanasi to take bath in the holy water of the Ganga and for the Darshan of the Jyotirlinga. It is believed that the one who will take bath (at least once in the lifetime) in the Gange in the holy city Varanasi will get Moksha. True devotees of the Lord Shiva get freedom from the cycle of the death and birth. After death they directly intermingled into the Mahadev. People beliefs that the one who decided to end their life at the temple, Lord Shiva himself drive a mantra of freedom in his ear.

Mangala Aarti : 03.00-04.00 (morning)
Where the Lord is woken up is at 3AM every morning. It is, no doubt, not an easy thing to be up and ready at the temple by 2:45AM, especially on a holiday, but this is one pooja which is worth the effort! First, we get to see the Lord, as he was during the night. Then, all the garlands and flowers are removed, and we get to see the original lingam in all its majesty. Then, Abhishekam is performed to the lingam followed by decoration with flowers. Again, this decoration is removed, and we get the Prasad, and finally each and everyone present is allowed to go near the lingam and offer prayers. This can be done in peace as the temple doors are not yet opened to the public. We spent about 20 minutes thus in seclusion with the lord we had come to see from so far.

Ticket cost for Mangala Arti – 251/- INR per person.

Bhog Aarti : 11.15-02.20 (day)
