Yogi: Yogi Adityanath 1st UP CM to visit KVT, Kaal Bhairav temple 100 times | Varanasi News – Times of India

VARANASI: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath offered prayers at Kashi Vishwanath temple and Kaal Bhairav temple on Saturday morning, becoming the first CM of Uttar Pradesh to have visited the temples 100 times. Also, the CM came to the city on a two-day visit for the 113th time on Friday, achieving both the feats in six years time.
CM Yogi has been coming to the temple every 21 days on an average since assuming power in 2017, to worship Lord Vishwanath and pray to Kaal Bhairav for the welfare of the people.
Neeraj Kumar Pandey, a priest at Kashi Vishwanath temple, said that the visits of CM Yogi are ample proof of his immense devotion towards Sanatan Dharma and Baba Vishwanath. CM Yogi visits Kashi at least once a month and on each visit, he reviews and conducts field inspections of development works in the city. After taking charge of Uttar Pradesh for the first time, Yogi visited Lord Visheshwar 74 times from 2017 to March 2022 to seek blessings. “On September 9 last year, when the Chief Minister visited Varanasi for the 100th time, he visited Shrikashi Vishwanath Dham for the 88th time. From then till March 18, the Chief Minister visited the temple 12 times,” he added.
At Kaal Bhairav temple, the CM also interacted with a boy who played ‘damru’ outside the temple and inquired about his studies. He offered prayers at the temple and performed ‘aarti’. Kaal Bhairav is known as the ‘Kotwal of Kashi’.
Earlier, CM Yogi inspected the newly constructed building of the circuit house on the second day of his tour.
He gave guidelines to the officials while conducting on-site inspection of the development work.
