Places of interest in and around Hassan

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.

Belur and Halebid

Channekeshvar Temple at Belur and Hoysaleswara 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.
