Name of the Location: Kashi Vishweshwara Temple, Rashin

Greatness of the Location: Old Temple dating back to Peshwa period

Type of Place: Temple


In the courtyard in front of Shri Vishnu Temple, we see a huge Barav (well) built and the wall is besides it and inside the wall compound we see Kashi Vishweshwara Temple. The highlight of this temple is the large brass bell in this temple (the researchers say that such bells are found in very few places across India whose sound is heard up to several kilometres). Mahadev’s Pind is visible in inside the temple. There are two gates to reach this gorge. This temple was also built by Akoba Shete, and its meeting place along with the throne can be seen in this temple.

This is where a subway can be seen (here it is also said that the voyage goes directly to Jagadamba Mata Temple). It is said that the three temples at Rashin belong to the Peshwas and they were built by the Shrimant Akoba Shete from a single artisan. The architecture of these temple’s belonging to Pewhwa period is so beautiful that it gives one such positive experience at this place.
