Banaswadi Hanuman temple – a place worth watching

In the heart of Banaswadi, near to the IT park of Bangalore stands a very old temple of Hanuman. My mother-in-law was mentioning about this temple for a long time. So, today I went in search of this temple by asking the shop keepers, finally I was able to locate it.
The old Kempegowda fashioned arch tomb welcomes the devotees. Since it was Saturday lot of devotees had flocked the shrine. There are other deities as well in the same shrine like Venkateshwara, Srirama, Basaveshwara etc. I enquired about the senesce of the temple at the shop keeper nearby who was looking at my footwear. He said it was 100 years old. A North Indian couple was along with me and the lady peeped through me to get a sight of the main deity. I guided her to join the ladies queue.
The temple serves food in the form of prasadam during afternoon; I had a chance to taste it. The temple could have been maintained in a little better way. It is pathetically maintained.

Every year on the eve of Hanuman Jayanthi which falls between December 16 to January 14 usually on a full moon-day in the month of Chaitra, this deity is attracted by a miracle; it so happens that tears come out from the idol and people flock from all parts of Bangalore to witness this miracle.
