This is because the target is to complete the work by August this year. The form of Kashi Vishwanath is now slowly taking shape. The work of the temple square is in progress. Beautifully carved pink stones are emerging. Baleshwar stones are now adorned on the walls of buildings in the Dham region.
Historical documents will be in front of the world
This is the dream project of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Here the historical documents of the temples of Manimala are also ready to be presented to the world. To prepare these documents, a three-member team of the Temple Survey of Archeology Department (ASI) Bhopal started work. In addition to the history of ancient temples found in the project, their antiquity, specialty and information related to the builder of the temples is being collected. More than 60 small and big temples have been found in 300 buildings purchased for the construction of Kashi Vishwanath Dham.
