More Information: So today we are heading towards Vindhyagiri also known as Indragiri hill where you will get to see Lord Gomateshwara or Bahubali, who is the son of first Jain tirthankara Adinath. And Shravanabelagola is the most important Jain pilgrims center in this country. The time of visiting the temple is morning 7 am to evening 5 pm. From the foot hill itself you need to deposit your shoes for 5 rs and start climbing 641 rock-cut steps. More you start going up, more you enjoy the beautiful view of the entire village. And from the top it looks mesmerizing.

When Adinath renounced his kingdom and decided to live as a hermit, his two sons Bahubali and Bharata fought facelessly to conquer the kingdom, where Bahubali won and later realised the consequences and gave the kingdom to his brother. After that he has chosen the path of meditation attaining enlightenment.

After stepping up, first you will find Odegal Basti. It consists three Jain shrines, main temple dedicated to Sri Adinath, the first jain tirthankara, on left Sri Shantinatha, 16th jain tirthankara, on right Sri Neminatha, 22nd tirthankara. Next is Tyagada Brahmadeva pillar, with carvings of creepers within it. After few more steps you will find a huge gateway with carvings of Goddess Laxmi flanked by two elephants. It is called Akanda bagilu. Finally you will enter to the main temple of Lord Gomateshwara aka Bahubali, you will find Bahubali statue in the middle encircled by gallery of various Jain tirthankaras.

The Bahubali statue is a single block of granite amazingly installed in 983 AD by Chamundaraya who was a powerful minister of Ganga king. Surprisingly the statue has no sign of damage till date. It is standing in a meditation posture named Kayotsarga indicating self control, grace and simplicity and the nakedness indicated completely renunciation of worldly things.

Mahamastakabhisheka is the main festival in Shravanabelagola held once in twelve years. It started from 2006 and upcoming date of this festival is February 2030. it is about pouring 1008 Kalashas of water, milk, coconut water, ghee, curd, sugar, honey, turmeric, almonds, saffron, jaggery, bananas, sandal paste, marigold flowers etc chanting mantras. It signifies the Lord's attainment after 12 month of meditation.
