Gyan Vapi Well Overview

Located in the middle of the Gyanvapi Mosque and Kashi Vishwanath Temple, this holy well is a popular pilgrimage site in Varanasi. Literally meaning the well of knowledge, Gyan Vapi Well is visited by many Hindu devotees for many years.

During the invasion of the temple by Emperor Aurangzeb, the effigy of Lord Shiva was carefully hidden by a priest inside this well. Since then, the waters of this well have been considered as sacred as river Ganga.
