The magnificent and picturesque mountain landscapes can be seen all around the temple.
Due to its popularity, this temple in Uttarkashi is considered to be part of the Char Dham Yatra. When pilgrims visit Gangotri Dham, they most certainly do the Darshan of Lord Shiva in this famous Uttarkashi temple. This temple is thought to have been built by Parashurama. Later, Sudarshan’s wife, Maharani, appeared.
Lord Shiva’s Shivling is located in the Shri Kashi Vishwanath temple and stands 56 centimeters tall. The Shivling faces south. Goddess Parvati and Ganesh are also present in the temple’s sanctum sanctorum. Nandini can be found in the temple’s outer room. The idols of Sakshi Gopal and Rishi Markandeya are depicted here in a state of meditation.
The Shakti temple is located directly in front of the Vishwanath temple, which is dedicated to Devi Parvati. The main attraction here is a massive and heavy trident – about 26 feet tall – that Goddess Durga threw on the devils.
The power of the mother is represented here by a massive trident that is estimated to be more than 1500 years old, and this Trishul is considered one of Uttarakhand’s oldest remains. It demonstrates the extensive Indo-Tibetan cultural exchange of Tibetan inscriptions in ancient times. The Naga dynasty is described on the Metal Trident, which stands 26 feet tall and is located near the main Shiva temple.
The Trishul has an amazing feature in that it cannot be moved with your entire body force, but it vibrates when you apply pressure with one of your fingers.
