  BHANASANKARI - BHANASANKARI DEVALAYA

Lying on the outskirts of Banglore, this Saktrsthal is luring a perennial stream of devotees through out the year. Conducting of Rahukala Puja on Sundays is its star-attraction, when its vast compounds overflow with devout bhaktas, among them women folk form the majority. It is an ancient temple built in the Dravidian architectural style with a prakara and mahadwara surmounting a modest sized gopura and many mini shrines for parivaradevathas. There are separate pavilions for the many adorable icons during the special prayer services, like Rahukala puja. The Mother draped in colourful rustling silk and dazzling jewels gives darsan seated in the spacious garbh griha. She is facing east. There are many images of serpent gods behind the temple under the Aswartha Vriksha receiving ardent prayers regularly. The Mother is the replica of the widely known and much hallowed Banasankari of Aihole, that was devoutly adored by the ruling princes in the days of yore and her infinite compassion emancipated lakhs of persons and has been going on doing even today. Here in this shrine too hoary traditions are observed and people with soulful prayers are getting liberated to their satisfaction. This alone is the important factor contributing tot he perpetuation and propagation of bhakti cult and its glory in this region.

It lies 15 km off Bangalore bus stand and accessible by city bus.
