In the quest for a peaceful abode, he came to Dandaka forest and, pleased with serenity of the region, selected this place. Since Maharishi Vyasa spent considerable time in prayers, the place was then called "Vasara" and turned into Basara due to the influence of the Marathi language in the region.See Basar Saraswati Temple and all Adilabad has to offer by arranging your trip with our Adilabad travel itinerary planner.
