Thousands of devotees thronged the Saraswati temple at Basara on Thursday, the first day of the three-day Vasanta Panchami, and offered prayers to the goddess.

Vasanta Panchami is held every year marking the birthday of goddess Saraswati, which falls on Friday this year. Some devotees complained of poor facilities. But temple assistant EO Srinivas maintained that they had made all arrangements for convenience of the pilgrims.
