Shravanabelagola is a town situated close Channarayapatna of Hassan locale in the Indian territory of Karnataka and is 144 km from Bangalore.

Shravanabelagola, settled by the Vindhyagiri and Chandragiri Hills, ensured by the stone monument Bhagwan Bahubali, and home to more than 2,300 long stretches of Jain legacy, is a veritable picture postcard of our history and legacy spreading over the hundreds of years.
