En route to Badami is a quaint hamlet that takes its name from the Goddess Banashankari. Built in the Dravidian style, the temple is dedicated to Goddess Banashankari, a form of Parvati highly revered by the weaver community. The idol depicts the powerful eight-armed goddess seated on a snarling lion. There is a large pond in front of the temple, Harida Theertha, which is enclosed on three sides by stone mantapas with inner colonnades. The annual temple festival in Banashankari is more than a religious event. Celebrate Basavakalyan along with thousands of devotees, when the streets around the temple are taken over by a huge fair, and marked by colour and gaiety.
