Based on a saga described in Kashi Khand, the Avimukta Vinayak form of Lord Ganesha is included in the Ashta Pradhan Vinayak Yatra. The idol of Lord Avimukta Vinayak is located at two places. One is located on the wall of Gyanvapi Mosque and another one is established in the premises of temple of Lord Vishweshwar (Vishwanath). It is believed that Lord Avimukta Vinayak removes all the distress faced by his devotees.
The place of worship remains open throughout the day.
Avi Mukta Vinayak Temple is situated near to Kashi Vishwanath Temple.
