We visited the temple during off season I presume. Because the crowd was measly and the darshan of the devi from close quarters is a thing of beauty. The temple itself is very clean and well maintained.

The Banashankari Temple is one of the few Chalukyan era temples functional even today. We had been here in the evening and had a very nice darshan of Goddess Banashankari.

This ancient temple continues to draw devotees. Right off the road, the temple is interesting and usually crowded.

*Bana Shankari* temple attracts devotees from Karnataka as well as the neighbouring state of Maharashtra. The original temple was built by the 7th century Badami Chalukya kings, who worshipped goddess Banashankari as their tutelary deity. The temple celebrates its annual festival called Banashankari jatre, in the months of January or February. The festival comprises cultural programmes, boat festival as well as a Rath yatra, when the temple goddess is paraded around the city in a chariot.

The day we went, there was a fair on, so there were very colourful displays outside the temple of beautiful flowers, mounds of coloured powder and sweet mithai, as well as a huge Rath! This temple to goddess Parvanti is well worth visiting.
