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.

Trip to KarnatakaDriver was good. Journey was good. Sightseeing was good. Biggest let down was the place to stay. It was just horrible. They didn't provide us water towels or anything. We had to ask for everything one by one. Breakfast was pathetic. Cold and not cooked well. The cabin given to us wasn't clean. There was no extra bed provided but a mattress to sleep on the floor in a wooden cabin.
Trip to KarnatakaTrip was planned properly. We had a pleasant stay in Coorg and enjoyed alot. We have covered all the sightseeing whatever mentioned in trip plan. Cab driver was friendly with place so no need to worry about route. And I would recommend Travel Agent for their hassel free service. Sunset at Raja Seat. Fresh air in Brahmagiri Hills
Trip to KarnatakaAgent vaara is really helpful and coperative. She knows how to handle and care the requirements of the trip. You can contact her anytime regarding any trip issue and the agency will be ready to modify any changes on demand. Driver was really friendly and punctual. It was like he is our friend who is taking us to trip. I am really seeing forward to have more trips with you all.
Trip to KarnatakaHi, I had booked a Coorg trip/tour through Lee Vacations. Starting with the very first communication from their representative (Varalaxmi) I was impressed. They provided me with an amazing quote for the trip having included my choice of the resort. They were very courteous and guided me well. Couldn’t have asked for a better deal..! The stay at Evolve Back (Orange County) Resort itself was a memorable one. Being disconnected from the world and closer to nature was something the highlight of the resort. The sightseeing tour of the Elephant Camp and the Tibetan settlement was great as well.
Trip to KarnatakaIt was a good experience and i would highly recommend Shoppers Trip for other clients..
