One of the earliest Shiva temples in Northern India is the Vishwanath temple. the Maharani Khaneti Devi of Tehri State rebuilt it in the original form in 1857. It occupies a prime location in the middle of town. From ancient times forward, worshippers have brought their offerings to the temple and laid them at the base of a gigantic iron trident that stands as a symbol of the heavenly mother. The temple grounds also have modest temples dedicated to the gods Ganeshji, Sakshi Gopal, and Markandeya Rishi. A unique aarti, known as Akhand Jyoti and Akhand Abhishek, are performed each morning and night. Uttarkashi is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas and is referred to as "Saumya Varanasi" in the Skanda Puran. The Shakti Temple is located just across from the Vishwanath Temple. It features a large "Trishul" that is roughly 6 metres tall and 90 centimetres in diameter at its base. There are varying theories concerning its composition, but the top half seems to be iron while the bottom half is copper. This Shakti was so named because, according to the epics, Goddess Durga (Shakti) threw it towards the demons. Over here, at this spot, stands this Shakti that was constructed after that. Conditions in Uttarkashi - Summers may be rather warm (between 30 and 35 degrees Celsius), but the cool evenings make up for it.
