"Hassan & Shravanabelagola" Hassan by bradbeaman

Hassan Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 33 photos

At 18 meters Shravanabelagola is one of the tallest statues carved from a single rock in the world.

It is over one thousand years old it and very impressive Jain holy site.

THere are 700 steep steps to be climbed (or caried up) to reach Shravanabelagola.

The statues depict creeper vines growing up Bahubali representing his ascetic life.

The Hassan road toward Mangalore has a completely different terrain than the Hassan road from Bangalore to Hassan. You soon are driving through coffee plantation country.
