Suparshwanatha Basadi, Shravanabelagola

At Shravanabelagola on the Chandragiri hill there are various monuments all over the hillock. One among them is Suparshwanatha Basadi to tthe north-west of the fort enclosure.



It is a small temple that consists of a garbhagriha, a sukhanasi and a porch. The temple belongs to a period between 11th to 12th century.



In the garbhagriha there is image of tirthankara Suparshwanatha. The image here is a seated figure, canopied by a seven hooded serpent and flanked by male fan bearers.

Beautiful -- I never get over being amazed at the antiquities in your country -- so beautiful and almost always so well cared for. That is something to be proud of for sure.
