The main structure at Sravanabelagola centers on an enormous statue of Gommateshvara Bahubali, which stands in a courtyard that frankly seems too small for it. The inner edge of the portico ringing that space is surmounted by a series of splendid carvings, and I quite liked this angle, which silhouettes the dark bell against the warm colors of the stone.
