The most popular temple of Annapurna is at Kashi followed by the one at Horanadu, in Karnataka. There are two other temples of Annapurna, one in Kerala, and one in Gujarat. I have not yet had the pleasure of visiting these last two temples. When I do, I shall surely write about them. Meanwhile, read about my visit to the Annapoorna Temple at Kashi.
A Jayanti is a festival dedicated to Goddess Annapurna Hindu goddess of food and cooking. It is observed on the full moon day in the month of Margashirsh. In some regions an Annapurna Vrat is observed during the period. Goddess Annapurna is believed to be an incarnation of Goddess Parvati. Annapurna Jayanti date is 2 December.
