BANARAS - VISWANATH MANDIR  

Soon preparations for conducting an elaborate ritualistic worship with yagna were made. With the performance of powerful 'anusthan yagna', he brought heavy down pour on the very same day of the completion of it. A boon to waterless land. And a clean flush out of the contagion. Opening the eyes, Lodi lifted the ban. The temple was then reopened and many parts were reconstructed, and prayers regularised. Does not God know when to take action and how? Will the omni compassionate God ever forget his bhaktas? No, never so far, Later Aurangazeb, the zealot turned blind to history and damaged all the places held sacred. He suffered but in a different way. Efforts at restoration bore fruits in 1783 with the construction of a grand temple by Rani Ahalyabai, a great Rajput lady of immense spirituality. Her bounty is now enabling the bhaktakoti to avail the darsan of the Lord and offering of personal prayers, a rare boon to the theists. 

The mandir is also called the Golden Temple; for the spires - sikharas are adorned with gold plates, donated by Maharaja. Ranjit Singh in 1835. Let the rationalists, agnostics and sceptics too enter and feast their eyes with Lord Viswanath's adorable form and learn for themselves the infinity of the Lord. But they will never. It proves an exercise in futility, since their perverted interior crossed the bounds of logic or sage counsel. Their progressive outlook recognises not the historical evidence; for, they, occupy the highest place among honourables.
