Halasuru/Ulsoor is one of oldest localities which was established by Britishers for migrants from Tamil Nadu who used to support the cantonment in 1800s. Jackfruits (Halasina Hannu in Kannada) were integral part of everyday life hence the name Halasuru which was later anglicized to Ulsoor.
Inside the temple preparations for upcoming Halasuru Pallaki Utsava were happening in full swing. For this festival a car decorated with jasmine buds worth 5 lakhs is taken around the locality.
Inside the temple apart from the architecture one will be awestrucked by two tall cannon ball trees (Linga Pushpa in Kannada) and the sweet fragrance of its flowers.
