About Banashankari Temple in Bangalore

Banashankari Temple needs no introduction, at least amongst the pilgrims who flock here from within the state of Karnataka and from neighbouring states throughout the year. Also known as Banashankari Amma Temple, this famous attraction, enjoys a special space in the cultural and mythological history of Bangalore. Among all the holy places in Bangalore, Banashankari Temple is the most important one because of the beliefs and stories that revolve around its existence.

Banashankari Temple Bangalore is dedicated to Goddess Banashankari who is believed to be the avtar of Goddess Parvati, wife of Lord Shiva. The story of the construction of the temple goes like, Goddess Banashankari appears in fire to save the people from the atrocities of the asura named Durgamasur who used to disturb the locals during their prayer sessions. Goddess Banashankari then killed the asura to free the locals from his cruel doings. It is when the temple was built at the place where Goddess Banashankari appeared from fire.

Another interesting belief followed here is that the devotees worship the deity in  Rahukalam to get rid off problems like poverty and misery. According to Hindu culture, Rahukala is considered inauspicious. Therefore, to get rid of the inauspiciousness in their lives, people come here to worship the deity in Rahukalam.

Banashankari Amma Temple has been built many times in different architectural styles. The very first architectural style was Dravidian style. After many reconstructions, the current main premises are comprised of Mukha Mandapa, Ardha Mandapa, Garbha Griha and Vimana. The positivity of this tremendously beautiful temple can only be experienced after visiting.

There grows life in the premises of Banashankari Temple Bangalore when the preparations for the Banashankari Jatre Festival are on peak. The vibrant celebrations, attract tourists and devotees from the state and from the adjacent states as well in the month if January.

A trip to Bangalore would be incomplete without visiting the Banashankari Temple.
