Hasanamba Temple Overview

Ranked 5 of 9 sightseeing in Hassan

The Hassanamba Temple is around 800 years old and is dedicated to Goddess Shakti or Amba. The main deity of the temple is that of Hassan. The inner chamber of the temple is open for only two weeks, especially for the Deepavali and closes three days after the celebration of Balipadyami.

The goddess is an anthill or hutta which resembles the deity of Hassanamba as Goddess Parvathi. When the temple remains closed, water, bags of uncooked rice, a lit lamp and flowers are kept in front of the goddess. It is believed that when the temple is opened the next year, the rice remains the same and so is the lamp which constantly burns. The inner chamber also has the image of Ravana and his nine heads, playing a veena. The Hassanamba Temple is situated on the Bangalore-Mangalore Road.

Open only in November

It is not a regular temple. Only for few weeks in November it is open. The temple does not have much sculpture like Belur temple, i heard from locals. So i did not visit the temple.
