"I am overwhelmed. After some time, we all will witness the inauguration of the Kashi Vishwanath Dham project.
Before this, I had darshan of Kaal Bhairav ji, the Kotwal of Kashi," Modi tweeted in Hindi.
He is heading to the Kashi Vishwanath temple to offer prayers at around 1 pm and will inaugurate the Kashi Vishwanath Dham at around 1.20 pm.
