"The Far Reaching Eye"

With a mythological tale attached to it this is one of the most visited among the numerous temples in Varanasi. Known as 'Shakti Peetha,' the story says the earrings of Sati, Lord Shiva's consort, fell here while she died and the place came to know as Manikarni. Although historians differ in their opinions, the name Visalakshi denotes the vast-eyed divinity that is omnipresent. A marked south Indian accent is noted in the construction and the bright colors used. Visalakshi Temple is a must-visit site near Alka Hotel and Dharmesh Temple.
