Shravanbelagola is one of the most important Jain pilgrim centers. Situated around 48 km away from Hassan, the city is home to the Bahubali Gomateshwara temple, famous for the 57 feet tall statue of Lord Bahubali. Said to be the tallest monolithic structure in the world, the 1000 year old statue overlooks the small town of Shravanbelagola from the top of a rocky hill.
