In a landmark decision, a Varanasi court has given Hindus the green light to conduct prayers in the basement of the Gyanvapi Mosque, adjacent to the revered Kashi Vishwanath Temple. This verdict brings an end to longstanding grievances of Hindu devotees and marks a pivotal moment in the ongoing legal dispute.

Historical Context

The Gyanvapi area, housing the Gyanvapi mosque, has been a point of contention, with Hindus asserting that the mosque was constructed after the demolition of an ancient Hindu temple. The recent court ruling seeks to address historical grievances and reinstate the right of Hindu devotees to worship within the area.

Advocate Vishnu Shankar Jain, representing the Hindu side, emphasizes the absence of any written order prohibiting Hindu prayers inside the Gyanvapi mosque area. He traces the history, noting that worship was halted in 1993 through what he deems an unconstitutional state government ban.

Varanasi Court’s Directive

The Varanasi court has directed the district administration to facilitate all arrangements within seven days for the puja in the basement, which will be conducted by the Kashi Vishwanath Temple Trust. This directive acknowledges the historical significance and religious sentiments associated with the site.

Rectifying Historical Injustice

The court’s decision is seen as rectifying a perceived historical injustice where Hindu devotees were allegedly stopped from offering prayers without proper legal orders. The ruling reinstates the right of worship that Hindus claim to have exercised until 1993.


Supreme Court Appeal and Wazukhana Area

Recent developments include the Hindu side’s appeal to the Supreme Court, seeking the de-sealing of the ‘wazukhana’ area within the Gyanvapi complex. This move emphasizes the importance of conducting a comprehensive survey in this area to further ascertain historical truths.


Varanasi court’s decision to allow prayers in the Gyanvapi area basement reflects a balance between historical grievances and religious sentiments. As legal proceedings continue, this landmark ruling is poised to shape the narrative surrounding the area and its historical significance.
