Last year, we had travelled in the tourist bus (KSTDC) to visit the world famous Shravanabelagola Jain temple in Karnataka State. We left at about 7.15 a.m. and reached at 11.15 a.m. after travelling about 160kms away from Bangalore. The volvo bus was convenient and we had no problem.
Shravanabelagola is famous for the gigantic statue of Bahubali, who is also known as Lord Gometeswara. The statue was sculpted with the leadership of Chavundaraya , in 978 to 993 A.D, when he came here with his guru in search of peace, towards the end of his life.
