Welcome to Paschima Kasi!
Paschima Kasi (Kasi of the West) as it is known is the spirit of Banaras in Flint, Michigan. Paschima Kasi Sri Vishwanatha Temple is located on 10 acres in a serene setting with an adjacent lake and stream – the Holy Ganges. The Midwest cumulus clouds as the snowcapped Himalayas and the Shakti of this sacred Kshetra (Place) all magically transport you to Shiva’s City of Light, Kasi. This is the first Agamic Shiva Temple in the United States.
The Paschima Kasi Sri Vishwanatha Temple celebrated its 25th Anniversary in 2007. The temple exhibits great Indian Culture and Temple Architecture. The interior of this temple is reminiscent of a typical South Indian Agamic temple, with traditional sanctums and large bronze bells. Nearby the main sanctum stands an independent Study Hall with an elaborate library of all great scriptures for study and reference. The multi-purpose building with the study hall is a great asset to the community with facilities to host cultural programs like classical dance, music, theatre etc. The building is equipped with guest facilities, a large kitchen and an office.
