Basar Temple

About Temple of Saraswati at Basara, Basar

The temple of Saraswati at Basara is one of the two famous Saraswati temples in India, the other being in Kashmir.  Legend has it that Sage Vyasa during his stay here used to bring daily three handfuls of sand after a bath in Godavari and kept it at place, which transformed as the images of Saraswati, Lakshmi and Kali.  However, according to Brahmandapuranam, Adikavi Valmiki installed Saraswati and wrote Ramayana here.  There is a marble image of Valmiki and his samadhi near the temple.  It is believed that this temple is one of the three temples constructed near the confluence of Manjira and Godavari rivers by Ashtrakutas.
