We found the original Kashi temple in the Puranas. This temple demolished in 1194 by Qutb-Ud-Din Aibak. After reconstructing, it destroyed again by Aurangzeb, and the Gyanvapi Mosque constructed in its place.

The modern version of the Kashi Temple was constructed by Maharani Ahilyabai Holkar, the daughter of Malhar Rao Holkar, in the 18th century. Maha Shivratri celebrated in this temple in a grand way.
