According to some old timers, original Avi Mukt Vinayak idol has disappeared.  Now two places are claimed to house this deity. One at Gyavapi Masjid, in the wall and other inside Visweshwar (Vishwanath) temple premises besides Gauri and Vishnu. Avi Mukta Vinayak, according to Kashi Khand, removes all difficulties from the lives of devotees who stay in Avi Mukta Kshetra (Kashi).Devotees can travel upto Gyanvapi by rickshaw and walk on foot to this place.


 The place of worship is open practically throughout and devotees can only pray.  Performing  pooja etc. may not be allowed.
