The popular jain pilgrim centre Shravanabelagola, located 51 km south-east of Hassan, is wedged between two rocky hills Indragiri and Chandragiri. The 17 meters high monolithic statue of a Jain Saint, Lord Gommateshwara standing atop the Indragiri Hills is said to be one of the tallest and most graceful statues in the world.

About 200 meters to the left from the path leading to the Gommateshvara Statue, there is a spacious sanctuary in Bhandari Basti  with 24 images of Tirthankaras. Shravanabelagola attained historical importance when Chandragupta Maurya, the greatest King of Mauryan Empire, settled on this hill in 3rd century BC, along with his Guru Bhagwan Bhadra Bahu Swami, after renouncing his kingdom.
