Sravanabelagola – The word
Sravanabelagola means, `The Monk on Top of the Hill’.
A small pilgrimage town with a population of
approximately 3,500 this is the most important Jain pilgrimage centres in India
and the site of a huge 17 Meter high statue of Lord Bahubali and is said to be
the world’s tallest Monolithic statue.
The statue is perched on top of the rocky hill
known as Indragiri and is visible for quite a distance.
The town has a long historical pedigree going
back to the 3rd century BC when Chandragupt Maurya came here after
renouncing his Kingdom. Jainism in South India was established by Bhagwan
Bhadrabahu Swami reaching the zenith of its influence between 4th
& 10th Century AD.
The statue of Lord Bahubali was created during
the reign of King Rachamalla in 981 AD and built by sculptor Assistanemi. To reach the Statue of Lord Bahubali atop the
Indragiri Hill, one has to climb 614 rock-cut steps, which is not much of an
effort considering the magnanimity and the religious significance of the place.

Temple at Halebid are one of the exuberating examples of the most artistic
periods of Hindu Cultural Development in South India. Quoting the Lonely Planet
: "The sculptural decorations on the superb temples even rivals the temples
of Khajuraho and Konark or the best of European Gothic art".
The temples with their sculptural details are
easily the most outstanding examples of Hoysala Art. Every inch of the outside
walls of the temples and much of the interiors are coverd with a variety of
Hindu Deities, sages and friezes depicting the life and times of Hoysala rulers.
