Yogi Adityanath further said that the world's oldest city Kashi is identified with Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple.
"It is also the 'karmabhumi' of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Inaugurating the Arogya Mandir on the occasion of Sharadiya Navratri is a noble initiative," said Adityanath.
During the inauguration programme, the Chief Minister also dedicated to the devotees the incense sticks made up of flowers offered to the deities.
He said that earlier, flowers offered to the deities could not be put to any good use, but now ITC company has used 'nirmalya' (flowers and garlands offered to deities at Kashi Vishwanath Temple) to manufacture incense sticks. In future, the nirmalya will be used to manufacture dhoop and perfume. He said that this initiative is inspiring women of Chandauli to become self-dependent.
