Mahamastakabhisheka of Lord Bahubali at Shravanabelagola now showing on your mobile phone

All roads lead to Shravanabelagola, about 150 kilometers from Bangalore, the world famous Jain pilgrim center in South India, as it readies itself to host the Mahamastakabhisheka (the head anointing ceremony) of the monolithic 57 foot statue of Lord Bahubali, from February 8 to 19, 2006.


It is an event of great significance, organ ized once in 12 years and is the first of the new millennium. Over the decades, the Mahamastakabhisheka has drawn the attention of not just India but the entire world. An estimated 30-lakh devotee witness and participate in the religious spectacle. Truly, there are few events to match the magnificence of the Mahamastakabhisheka performed for the 57-foot monolith statue of Lord Bahubali that stands atop the Indragiri Hill as an imposing symbol of benevolence and sacrifice. Bahubali was a Jain prince who renounced the world and took to leading a life of penance.
