About 90KM from Hassan is the Jain heritage town of Sravanabelgola.The monolith of the first Jain Tirthankar ( There are 24 Tirthankars in all ) Gomateshwar / Bahubali is awesome. It stands 57 feet tall and was built in 983 AD. You will have to climb 600 steps to reach the hill top where the statue is placed in a temple.
A tiny little town in Karnataka which is an important Jain pilgrim centre. The important 'Mahamastakabhishekha' is held every twelve years. A grand sacred bath is given to the statue from it's forehead with sacred water,milk,ghee,curd, flowers and silver and gold coins. The next event is due in 2018.
