Mythology believes the Vishalakshi temple as one of the Shaktipeethas. When Lord Shiva's wrath at the death of his wife Sati manifested as the Tandava which would destroy the Universe, Lord Vishnu's Sudarshan chakra cut her corpse into pieces which scattered around the subcontinent. It is believed that the Goddess' earrings fell where the temple of Vishalakshi stands today.

The narrow lanes near Meer Ghat in the holy city of Varanasi lead to the Vishalakshi temple built in South Indian architectural style. The Gopuram at the entrance has elaborate carvings. The temple has an array of Shivlingams around it. The four pillars in front of the main shrine are adorned with colourful sculptures. The Garbhagriha has two idols of Goddess Vishalakshi- a smaller black stone idol called Adi Vishalakshi, which is believed to be the original idol on left back side and another black stone image, adorned with flowers and jewels, installed at a later date.
