From the aeons of time, particularly from the dawn of aptitude for religion, highest veneration is extended to this holy place by all classes of people; especially by those, who realized the potency of devotion and fear of sin -daiva bhakti and papa bheethi. As it was deemed the holiest place due to permanent presence of Maheswar -the Bhaktava Shankar, and the flowing of all-purifying Ganga, hundreds of emperors performed yagas, and built many shrines and dharmasalas for the comfort of ever-increasing influx of yatris. One can come across small shrines adorned with Siva lingas at the head of each bathing ghat, in addition to well-built, and neatly maintained temples at many places. The lanes and by-lanes are dotted with pedestals for Sivalingas, making Hinduism peep from every inch of this holy city. Being the centre of Sanskrit learning, literary activities of high order, and religious performances of all types are being carried on to make this place busy round the clock, and through all the seasons, that TIME seems to stand still here. Modernity has never wiped out traditionalism, nor mutability gulped down the boary culture, founded and nurtured by the famous Maharishis. So an infinite number of generations have visited, are visiting and will visit, deeming Kasi Visweswar's darsan is the highest goal of life -- the be-all and end-all of religious living.
