Wodeyar Mantap, Shravanabelagola

At Shravanabelagola on the Indragiri hill there are various ancient monuments all over the hillock. One among them is Wodeyar Mantap.



It is in the North West direction of the enclosure surrounding the Gometshwara statue. In this mantapa one can see a four sided stone erected with inscription on it in all the directions.




The inscription details that Wodeyars of Mysore bailed out Jain Temples in this area.
