History of the Tulsi Manas Temple Varanasi

This temple is a very modern temple built only recently in the year 1964. The ancient Indian epic Ramayana was largely beyond the understanding of the common people of the country because it was written in Sanskrit, a language in which only a learned few were versed. Goswami Tulsi Das took upon himself the responsibility of translating the Ramayana into Hindi. This would considerably reduce the number of people who were being deprived of such a fantastic literary work. He composed his Ram Charit Manas at this very spot in Varanasi or Kashi.

His composition gained tremendous popularity. Ram was always acclaimed and recognized not just as a good king but also as a great king. People read of him in Ram Charit Manas and started eulogizing him. Blessed with unparallel dignity and a lot of virtues, he came to be worshipped by his countrymen. He made a permanent place for himself in the heart of his countrymen and so did Tulsi Das who carved a niche for himself in the literary world. Years later a temple in honor of Lord Ram was constructed at the very spot where Tulsi Das had written of him and the temple was named Tulsi Manas Temple as a mark of respect and reverence for him.

Significance of the temple


The ancient Indian epic Ramayana was written in Sanskrit due to which it was largely beyond the underastanding of most of the people a language in which only a learned few were versed. Goswami Tulsi Das took up the responsibility himself of translating the Ramayana into Hindi. Which in a way considerably reduced the number of people who were being deprived of such a fantastic literary work. Tulsi Das composed his Ram Charit Manas at this very spot in Varanasi or Kashi.

His composition of Ram Charit Manas gained tremendous popularity. Lord Ram was always acclaimed and presented not just as a good king but also as a great king. People read about Ram in Ram Charit Manas and started praising him. Lord Rama was blessed with unparallel dignity and a lot of virtue while his countrymen worshipped him. He made a significant place for himself in the heart of his countrymen and so Tulsi Das had carved a niche for himself in the literary world. Year’s later a temple in honor of Lord Ram was constructed at the very spot where Tulsi Das had written of him and the temple was named Tulsi Manas Temple as a mark of respect and reverence for him.

Ram Charit Manas bestowed Lord Rama as a deity. Before that, he was only considered a King who was unparallelled when it came to dignity. Tulsi Das created a god out of him and in coming centuries he started ruling the hearts of Indians irrespective of their religion. The present temple stands on the same spot. The temple might not look impressive but it is the simplicity in which its importance lies. The serene surrounding welcomes the devotees with break from the jostling and madding crowds at Vishwanath Temple. The walls of this temple are splattered with verses from Ram Charit Manas.
