HDR Image of Odegal BastiOdegal Basti is located at Shravanabelagola and is datable to 14th Century A.D. Odegal Basti is so called because of the stone props against its basement (Odegal means broken stones). It is the only Trikutachala (triple-shrine) temple at Shravanabelagola. It is called the triple-shrine because of the three Sanctums present inside the temple.
Built of granite blocks, it is impressive for the commanding position it occupies on the Vindyagiri Hill. One has to climb about 600 steps to reach this place. All the pillars in the main hall are circular in shape and the outer walls are very simple. In the three Sanctums are beautiful images of Thirthankaras carved in schist.
Following are the statues of the three Thirthankara's present in the shrine.
