In the title compound, C 22H 21ClN 4O 2·2H 2O, the almostplanar benzimidazole ring system [maximum deviation 0.014 (1) Å] is inclined at angles of 36.32 (5) and 74.75 (7)° with respect to the phenyl and imidazole rings, respectively. In the crystal structure, the water molecules are linked to the organic molecules to form a threedimensional network via O - H⋯N and O - H⋯O hydrogen bonds. The packing is further consolidated by a pair of bifurcated C - H⋯O bonds, generating R 1 2(6) loops. C - H⋯π interactions are also observed.
