vasantha vallabharaya temple
Vasantha Vallabharaya Temple, located in Vasantapura in Bangalore city, is a temple dedicated to the deity Vasantha Vallabharaya, the Hindu god Vishnu It dates back to the Chola dynasty

Overview

Situated on a hillock south of Bangalore city in Vasantapura, the Vasantha Vallabharaya Temple, as history records it, belongs to the times of Rishi Mandavya, who, according to sthalapurana, is said to have built the shrine

According to sthalapurana, Bangalore in the ancient times was called Kalyanpuri and the small town Vasantapura, where, the Vasantha Vallabharaya shrine "devoted to Vishnu" is located, was a site in the midst of a jungle where holy sages meditated With the passage of time, the greenery was gradually replaced by tilled land It is said many tirthas springs lay on the dirt track that went to the temple site Those tirthas were considered holy as Lord Vallabharaya "another incarnation of Vishnu" bathed in them after his marriage to Goddess Lakshmi at Narayana Vana, close to Tirupathi Today, the road to the temple is paved and only two springs called the Devatirtha and Vasantatirtha remain Sadly, two of those tirthas were filled with soil for real estate work It is also apparent that the temple area has suffered owing to the steady growth in the development CHARAN

Considered to be erected during the Chola dynasty, the ancient temple history also carries the story of Rishi Mandavya's finding of a Svayambhu image of Vallabharaya at the site where the shrine presently sits
