Shravanabelagola - Spectacular Jain Festival

I was there at Shravanabelagola (Karnataka,India) just a few months ago to visit the giant Bahubali ( Lord Gomateeshwara) statue. It was an awesome sight !

The Mahamastakabhisheka is a spectacle that is held once in 12 years where special pujas and rituals are performed to the monolith statue. BBC has a wonderful audio Slideshow on the abhisheka which happened a few weeks ago.
