Now devotees will be able to visit the prominent Shri Kashi Vishwanath temple in the Dwadash Jyotirlingas located in Varanasi from Tuesday.

After the Mangala Aarti from June 8, the doors of the temple will be opened for the devotees. With the rules of social distancing, devotees will get entry into the temple.
In a conversation with NBT Online, Sunil Kumar Verma, CEO of Kashi Vishwanath Temple said that after the active cases of Corona have decreased, the RTPCR report of Corona has been abolished by entering the temple. However, in view of the safety of the devotees, the ban on entry into the sanctum sanctorum will remain in force.
It is necessary to follow the corona rules
Sunil Kumar Verma told that the devotees will have to follow the corona rules to enter the Kashi Vishwanath temple. Apart from the rules of hand sanitization and social distancing, masks have been made mandatory for entering the temple. No devotee will be allowed to enter the temple without a mask. Apart from this, only 5 devotees will be allowed to enter the temple at a time.
The ban was imposed from April 10
In Varanasi, the entry of devotees in the sanctum sanctorum was banned on 10 April due to the increasing corona infection in the month of April. Apart from this, devotees were also kept away from Mangalarati. When the pace of infection increased, the temple administration had imposed the obligation of RTPCR report of Corona for the tableau darshan in the temple from April 15.
