Shravana Belagola

Had been to Shravana Belagola today.
Shravana Belagola is located in Hassan district of Karnataka.
The 57-feet tall monolithic statue of Gommateshvara is located on Vindyagiri Hill. We have to climb 600 odd steps to reach the statue. It is considered to be the world's largest monolithic stone statue.
The Mahamasthakabhisheka, the head anointing ceremony of the Lord Gommateshwara Sri Bahubali is observed once every 12 years.
