Bhagawan Bahubali Statue (Gommateshwara) reviews
The statue was huge and eye catching. It has been changed from what it was earlier. People have to climb atleast for 30-45 minutes - some places there are steep steps. Not ideal for old aged people... more »
This is an amazing experience, to climb the Vindhyagiri hill and worship Bhagwan Bahubali. The hill is a bit of a steep climb, but doli is available for old aged people. There are a few Jain basadi.... more »
A great monolithic statue, a slightest imagination make you wonder how it was carved out from top to bottom with so much perfection. On top of the hill you feel tranquility and Eternal peace. The Pilgrimage you will always cherish.
Must visit to see one of the largest free standing statues in the world. You need to climb up around 500+ steps to reach up the hill top. Would suggest you take the climb in the morning or evening.
