Festivals and Events in Hassan

Hassanamba Temple Festival is the main festival in Hassan that is held every year in the month of October in the honour of the presiding deity who is believed to be the protector of the city of Hassan.

It is said that one of the Sapte Matrekes or Seven Mothers visited Hassan many years ago as part of a pilgrimage, and spent her time living in a large snake hole. Since then, the site has become the centre for religious activities. A temple around the site has been built, called the Hassanamba Temple. The sanctum sanctorum of the temple depicts Hassanamba as blessing her devotees from the snake hole.
