Agastya Lake


Situated only 1km from the Bus Station of Badami, the Agastya Lake is known to have healing powers. This lake faces all the temples and is surrounded by the Bhootanatha Temple. This temple is made of sandstone.

The locals come to the lake not only to wash their clothes but also to bathe.

In Vaikunta, the Pushkarni was considered to be a pleasure tank of the Gods. This is also a beloved of Bhoodevi and Lakshmidevi. Garuda, the vehicle of Lord Vishnu, brought the Pushkarni and set it here.
