Shravanabelagola is a town in Karnataka that is renowned for the monolithic statue, possibly the largest stone statue in the world of Gomateswara. It is hence an important Jain destination.
The trail that is visible on the left side of the hill is the one that one climbs up to view the statue. The inscriptions at the base of the statue are from the 10th century AD.
The views from the top are quite beautiful.

Every august the indiranagar park puts on quite a display of flowers, to match the independence day flower show at lalbagh. It is quite a treat with zinnias, salvias, hibiscus, asters, hollyhocks , cleomes and jasmines all in full bloom.
