The history of kashi vishwanath temple as published in Times of India on 28.02.1995 is reproduced below:
KASHI'S OLDEST HINDU TEMPLE DESTROYED BY MUSLIM RULERS :
Times of India, February 28, 1995

Lucknow: In the narrow winding lane from the Dashwashwamedh Ghat leading towards the famed Vishwanath Mandir in Varanasi, the atmosphere is one of extreme piety at all times of the day. The temple is, perhaps, one of the most potent symbols of Hinduism in the country in a city which by all accounts is one of the oldest centers of pilgrimage for the Hindus.
The original Vishwanath temple is supposed to have been built around 490 AD during the Gupta period। istorical records suggest that it was destroyed by Muslim ruler. The first Muslim invader to attack Varanasi was Ahmed Nihalidin, the governor of the Indian province of the Ghazani empire, in the 11th century. His aim was to acquire the wealth accumulated in the temples of Varanasi. Later, Qutub-ud-din Aibak of the slave dynasty invaded the city and more than 1000 temples are said to have been destroyed in this onslaught.


After the defeat of Ibrahim Lodi in 1526, the city passed under the control of Afghans but was later captured by the Moghul ruler Babur.
In 1539, it was captured by Sher Shah Suri। In the tolerant regime of Akbar, many temples and other structure were rebuilt by Hindu kings in Varanasi.
Raja Todar mal, one of the "jewels" in Akbar's court, constructed a new temple on the site of the destroyed Vishwanath temple in 1585.
This was again destroyed by Aurangzeb in 1669 while on his way to conquer the Deccan. Aurangzeb got a mosque constructed in its place.
The present temple was reconstructed by Maharani Ahilya Bai Holkar in 1777. The dome of the Vishwanath temple was gold-plated by Maharaja Ranjit Singh in 1839.
Adjacent to the temple is the Gyanvapi Masjid, which was built by Auragzeb on the remnants of the original temple। He had, however, agreed to the plea of the Kashi Brahmins that a temple would be allowed to exist adjacent to the Gyanvapi masjid as also to the reconstruction of the Kali temple at Aurangabad, about three kmaway। This temple, too, was destroyed by the invading Muslim armies.The remnants of the original Vishwanath temple are revered by the devout Hindus as Shrinagar Gauri, the abode of Lord Mahadev. Muslims offer namaz in the premises of the Gyanvapi masjid but not in the main hall.
नोट:
1. The original kashi vishwanath temple is the present gnan vapi mosque and within this old temple namaaj is offered by muslims. 2. However, all the walls of the old temple were kept in tact upto say one feet at the base level and the new masjid wall was constructed over it. So a pradakshinam of this mosque would help any shiv bhakt find traces of the original kashi vishwanath temple where images of gods and goddesses were engraved. 3. Even the old nandi (bull) of the original temple was left undestroyed, which is facing the present mosque. But thankfully this nandi is outside the masjid complex and all shiv bhakts can touch it and feel the positive vibrations of the original old temple and imagine the original vishwanath shivling in front of the nandi, now within the mosque.

सवाल: "काशी साईं" संस्था का उदय कैसे हुआ ?

उतर:
काशी के "महान संत कबीर" ने अपने एक दोहे में यह कहा है कि.....

"साईं इतना दीजिए, जामें कुटुम्ब समाये,
मैं भी भूखा ना रहू, साधू ना भूखा जाए।"


बस "संत कबीर" के इसी दोहे से "काशी साईं" संस्था का उदय हुआ है।

(इस के अलावा "महान संत कबीर" ने और भी अनगिन्नत दोहों में "साईं" शब्द का उपयोग किया है।)


काशी साईं फाउंडेशन सोसाइटी के मूल विचार:-

"मानव प्रेम ही ईश्वर प्रेम है"

"साईं मानव प्रेम, साईं ईश्वर प्रेम"
हमारी सोसाइटी का मानना है, कि भारत में "साईं" नाम ही एक ऐसा नाम है, जो बटवारा नहीं करता इसीलिए हमारी सोसाइटी "जय साईं भारत" कहती है...!!
हमारी सोसाइटी का यह प्रयास है, कि साईं के नाम पर पूरे भारत को एक सूत्र में पिरोया जाये, ताकि भारत में किसी भी किस्म का बटवारा ना रह जाये....!!

"Jai Sai Bharat"
