This is located in the campus of Benaras Hindu University with wide spread marble corridors and a pious place to worship. It's very serene and a calm place for meditation and worship Lord Shiva.

This is quite a large temple complex and there is a lot to see around the building. The main shrines are quite small, but are interesting. People seem relatively relaxed about photos though they are technically not permitted.

This is an attractive temple on the University Campus dedicated to Shiva the destroyer (without destruction of falsehood there can be no enlightenment). It also features the Goddess of Power who is always represented with many arms.
