Significance :

It has a pier ensuring boats to ply. Represents ancient sites of Jarasandheshwara and Vriddhaditya

At a short distance from Vishalakshi Temple and Dharma Kupa is Mir Ghat, named after Muslim commander Mir Rustam Ali, leading down to the holy River Ganga. In fact two old sites- Jarasandhesvara and Vridhaditya are represented on Mir Ghat and have been coalesced into one ghat by Mir Rustam Ali in 1735. The ghat is narrow, but strongly made, and its stairs are placed at convenient intervals for persons ascending and descending them, so as to induce as little fatigue as possible by the exercise. In passing down the Mir Ghat, you are attracted by a row of shrines on the left, embellished in strong glaring colours ; and, at one angle of the ghat, a temple is seen on the right-hand side, filling up the corner in that direction, on arriving at which you come in sight of the river. This temple on the corner is dedicated to Radha - Krishna who are standing side by side. Lord Krishna and Radha are both completely dressed; Krishna has tinsel drapery about him, and presents a somewhat rakish appearance. He is playing on a flute; yet is, nevertheless, holding in each hand a marigold and a rose — not artificial, but natural flowers. The temple contains a number of small paintings and a red idol of Lord Ganesh.

A modern age structure can be noted atop Mir Ghat – a new Kashi Vishwanath temple. This temple was built in 1956 under the aegis of Karpatri Ji Maharaj, a famous saint of India.
