Vishwanath Temple, Uttarkashi Overview

The Vishwanath Temple, right across the Shakti Temple, is a chief religious shrine for the visitors of the two of the holiest shrines of the four prime shrines of Hinduism, the Gangotri and the Yamunotri.

Vishwanath, literally translating to the ruler and the caretaker of the world, is a title given to Lord Shiva, who is the greatest Hindu mythological benefactor, and the God of resurrection. The shrine, known as the 'linga', is in the temple, and about 90 cm wide, and 60 cm high. The shrine has immense religious significance, due to its history with being a powerful wish granting shrine, and its proximity to the shrine of the female deity.
