Abodes of Shiva (Kashi Temples)

Dwareshwar Temple


Goddess Parvathy wanted to know about  various Shiv Lings and deities at several places in Kashi and Lord Shiva was pleased to describe such deities (Kashi Khand, Chapter 97). Lord Shiva narrates about Dwareshwar Ling along with Dwareshwari Devi. Devotees who worship Dwareshwar will attain  full benefits of living in Kashi and attain Siddhi.  In other words, they will acquire divine powers and attain Moksha.


Dwareshwar is mentioned to be in south of Durg Vinayak at B-27/1.  Our enquiries revealed that the deity is located outside the South entrance of Durga Devi Temple at Durga Kund.  The main entrance is to the western side.  Dwareshwar is located in  a small temple like structure alongwith Dwareshwari Devi (mentioned in Kashi Khand, Chapter 97). The place of worship is open practically throughout and devotees can perform pooja on their own.
