“Awesome Shravanabelagola”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

The whole place is very serene and scenic. Very well maintained and there is peace and tranquility all around. Worth a visit. The climb to the top is definately worth it. It is nice to take a stroll around the town too.

“Spirituality with awesome views”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

I had the chance to visit the tallest one piece structure in the world. Lord Bahubali's monolithic statue is more than a thousand years old.

It is situated in a scenic and serene village only 150 km from Bangalore and 80 km from Mysore. Entry is free. Food is very cheap here costing less than a pound per head. I had tasted one of the best vegetarian food here.

There are many other temples on the other mountain and even in the city which are more than 2500 years old. The architecture is astounding and the atmosphere is very calm and serene. Away from the hectic life of Bangalore, this place is a nice break.

Please see the wiki page for more details.

“Gomateshwara Statue at shravanabelagola”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

One of the best places i ever visited. It gives you the feel of being one with yur self.. a little religion, a little adventure, a little history, a little architecture.. makes this trip complete.

1000 years old monolythic statue of Bahubali, looks awsome and the city look from the hill is also wonderful .

The hand written scriptures on hill reflect the heritage and importance of this protected monument.

“Nice historical place to visit”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

Its a nice historical place to visit. Main attraction is Statue of Mahubali which 80 ft long.You need to climb around 600 steps.Ideally you should be bare feet but u can move with socks also. Other attraction are numerious jain basadis of different thrithankara and foot print of Chandragupta. In foot of the Hill I will advice you to try tasty Jain food from any of the Jain Bhojonalayas.
Distance is 141 km from Bangalore.You can also travel from Hassan- channarayapatna- shravanabelagola(Total 50Km approx).Need to change bus in channarayapatna.Plenty of KSRTC buses are available.Corporation bank ATM are there in channarayapatna/ shravanabelagola.
