About Avimukteshwar Temple

Many ancient Shiva Temples could be witnessed in Kashi. one of them is the Avimukteshwar Temple. The importance of this Temple is mentioned in Kashi Khand.


A person who dies in Varanasi or Kashi achieves Moksha and does not experience reincarnation; this place is known as Avi Mukta Kshetra. There have been several debates and questions made on whether the Avimukteshwar Temple or the Vishwanath Temple is the primary temple in various locations. This temple has been emphasized in ancient manuscripts and grants.

Ancient writings claim that a person who has the darshan of Avimuktheshwar Ling gets absolved of all of his Paap Karmas spanning multiple generations and does not experience reincarnation. Bhagwan Vishwanath is said to do the pooja of Avimukteshwar every day, according to legend. In the Ling Puran, Kashi Khand, as well as the Brahma Vaivart Puran, Avimuktheshwar Ling is mentioned.

A stunning temple dedicated to Avimukteshwar Ling formerly stood on the site, and Vishweshwar Ling was also housed there, according to historical sources. On the same property, worshippers could see both lingas. The Shiv Ling, however, may not be at the exact location that was envisioned in Kashi Khand due to a period of destruction during the Mughal era.
