An ancient centre of Hindu worship.
Legend is associated with Lord Vishnu giving darshan to a sage called Agni Bindu Rishi at this place.
The present temple structure is only a 19 nth century version of what it was earlier. Sadly, the Mughal king destroyed the original temple and a mosque was built over it.
The temple is next to famous Panch Ganaga ghat of Varanasi. It is accessible by boat or by road from other famous ghats of Kashi.
