Kashi Vishalakshi is a Shakti Peeth Temple in Varanasi. The earrings of Maa Parvati had fallen on this place and the devi came to be known as ‘Vishalakshi’ i.e the big-eyed. The Skand Purana, Kashi Khand mentions the episode of Maharishi Vyas cursing the city of Varanasi and that everyone in the city will be deprived of food.

Maa Kashi Vishalakshi from centuries is worshipped as the Kul Devi of people from the Dravidian or Tamil cult. In general, Devi holds special significance for those in the south of India.
