“Tulsi Manas Temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

Lovely and big temple. The walls are all carved with the different khandas of Ramayan from the Saint Tulsidas. It is a calm and quiet place, much in contrast to the other temples and city of Varanasi.

“Beautiful and Peaceful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2013

Tulsi Manas Temple is made of white marble. It is believed that at this place Goswami Tulsidas, composed and sang Sri Ramacharita manas, the story of Rama. That is why this temple is kinown as Tulsi Manas Mandir.

This temple of Rama in white marble, is set in midst of lush greenery. It gives an aura of peace and calm.

The walls of the temple are inscribed with verses and scenes from the Ramacharita manas. If you go to first floor, you can see many figures in the gallery. Photography is not permitted.

Near by this temple you can visit Durga temple, Trimurti Temple, and Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple in one go as they all are situated within a stretch of 2 kilometers on the same road going from Bhelupur crossing to Lanka crossing..

“Visit Upstairs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013

Be sure not to miss the moving figures gallery upstairs with scenes from the Ramayana. Popular with Indian tourists, costs only 3 rupees, although no photographs. Like nothing else you've seen...
