About Basar

Basar, also known as Bhasara, is a popular pilgrim town in Nizamabad District of the newly formed state Telangana. It is at distance of 30 K.M from the district headquarters Nizamabad and 220 K.M from the state capital Hyderabad. The town is situated on the banks of River Godavari. Since this place is adjacent to Maharastra, the influence of Marathi is seen here.

Basar is the renowned town as a religious place of worship where Goddess Gnana Saraswati is worshipped as the prime deity and the ancient temple has a glorious history and linked with Maharshi Vyasa who settled here after Kurukshetra war for peace. Thus this place was initially called as ‘Vasar’ and in the later years changed to Basar. The temple at Basar is also the abode of Goddess Lakshmi and Kali. The Kannada king Bijala ruled Nandagiri province with Nanded as capital and said to have constructed the temple of Goddess Saraswati at Bhasar. It is the second temple in India and the first one being in Jammu and Kashmir. The presence of Saraswati, Lakshmi and Kali at one place makes Basara the abode of the divine trinity.

Pilgrims throng to this place to perform ‘Aksharabhyaasam’ (starting education for the first time to start writing the alphabets) in the temple premises for their little tots. It is believed that those who perform Asharabhyasa Puja here would excel in education and flourish well in their career.
