Weekend Drive: Sravanabelagola

TAGS: None

Sravanabelagola is proper weekend drive from Bangalore.Its around four hours drive from Bangalore.Catch the road which goes to Hassan and once you reach Hassan you can catch the road to Sravanabelagola. Its nearly 180 Kms from Bangalore. The map is given below.

From wikipedia
Shravanabelagola is a city located in the Hassan district, in the Indian state of Karnataka. It is one of the most important Jain pilgrim centers. In Kannada language, ‘Bel’ means white and ‘kola’, the pond, an allusion to the beautiful pond in the middle of the town.

There are two hills Chandragiri and Vindyagiri. The last shruta-kevali Bhadrabah and his pupil Chandragupta (formerly the Maurya king) had meditated there. Chandragiri has memorials to numerous monks and shravakas who have meditated there, since 5th cent CE, including the last king of the Rashtrakuta dynasty of Manyakheta. Chandragiri also has a famous temple built by Chamundaraya, who was a disciple of Acharya Nemichandra Siddhanta-chakravarti.

The Vindhyagiri hill is home to a thousand year-old gigantic 17.38 meter high monolithic stone statue of the Bhagavan Gomateshwara Bahubali, considered to be the world’s largest, built by Chamundaraya, a general of king Gangaraya. The base of the statue has inscriptions in Kannada, Tamil and the oldest evidence of written Marathi said to be from 981AD. The inscription concerns the king Gangaraya who funded the effort, and his general Chamundaraya, who erected the statue for the king. Every 12 years, thousands of devotees congregate here to perform the Mahamastakabhisheka, a spectacular ceremony where the thousand-year-old statue is anointed with milk, curds, ghee, saffron and gold coins. The next Mahamastakabhisheka will be held in 2018 A.D.

Travel Plan: Leave Bangalore early may be around 5 or 6 am. Have the breakfast somewhere in between on the road to Hassan. Go watch gommateshwara. And other basadi. If you are willing to drive more go to Beluru and Halebidu (I will cover next time). Dont forget to take your camera.

The event to be held at the Indian Institute of Management -Bangalore is a sequence to the Third International GPLv3 Conference that took place in Barcelona, Spain.

GPLv3 conference BangaloreGPLv3 conference Bangalore Hosted on Zooomr

The version 3 of the GPL, essentially, takes into account changes in terms of legal and technical environment, in which software licenses operate, and the need to increase protection against new threats such as software patents and Digital Restrictions Management (DRM). The worldwide awareness drive for GPLv3, is to ensure that, all users of
software distributed under its terms, have the freedom to examine,
share, and modify that software.
