Virtual Darshan? This temple introduces virtual reality darshan for devotees amid heatwave

Uttar Pradesh : In a pioneering move to enhance accessibility and spiritual experience, the Kashi Vishwanath Temple in Uttar Pradesh has introduced a virtual reality (VR) darshan for devotees. 

The temple administration has introduced 11 minutes and 50 seconds of virtual reality Darshan. This will allow the devotees to avoid standing in a long queue in the scorching heat to get the darshan.


This initiative aims to enable devotees from around the world to experience the sacred atmosphere and rituals of the temple. 

The temple administration said that the service is now on a trial basis and will be implemented permanently after getting feedback from the devotees.

 Speaking about the new initiative, Kashi Vishwanath Temple Chief Executive Officer Vishwa Bhushan Mishra said, "3D virtual reality is a new technique which has been implemented in various temples like Ujjain's Mahakaleshwar and Mata Vaishno Devi temple. The company providing 3D technology in those temples contacted Kashi Vishwanath Temple Trust for the same."

"Between May 5 to June 4, a total of 363 of our employees and priests watched the movie. They gave positive feedback about the show. Thereafter, it was started for devotees and from June 4 to June 30, a total of 282 devotees watched the movie. If the devotees like it, then it will be implemented on some modalities and terms and conditions mutually beneficial and agreed upon," he added.

This initiative allows devotees to witness rare sights of Bholenath and participate in the five-part aarti at 'Durlabh Darshan Kendra' within just 11 minutes and 50 seconds. The initiative was inspired by Ujjain's Mahakaleshwar and Mata Vaishno Devi temples.

Among the twelve Jyotirlingas, Kashi Vishwanath attracts worshippers from across the globe. 

This innovative step by the Kashi Vishwanath Temple marks a significant milestone in blending tradition with modernity, ensuring that devotees can connect with their spiritual roots in an increasingly interconnected world.
