Jain Sage Gomateswara Statue

Gommateshwara Statue is a 57-foot (17 m) high monolithic statue located on Vindyagiri hill at Shravanbelagola in the Indian state of Karnataka. Vindyagiri is one of the two hills in Shravanabelagola in the Indian state of Karnataka. The other one being Chandragiri which is also a seat of several very ancient Jain centres, dating back much older than Gommateshwara statue.

The statue Gommateshwara is dedicated to the Jain god Bahubali. It was built in around 983 A.D. and is one of the largest free-standing statues in the world. The construction of the statue was commissioned by the Ganga dynasty minister and commander, Chavundaraya. Neighbouring areas have Jain temples known as basadis and several images of the Tirthankaras.

One can have a beautiful view of the surrounding areas from the top of the hill. An event known as Mahamastakabhisheka attracts devotees from all over the world. The Mahamastakabhisheka festival is held once in 12 years when the Gommateshwara statue is anointed with milk, saffron, ghee, etc. to maintain its freshness. On August 5, 2007, the statue was voted as the first of Seven Wonders of India; 49% of the total votes went in favour of it.
