Gomateswara Statue, Venur

While on a trip to Venur village, tourists must visit the Gomateshwara statue that was constructed by a Jain ruler, King Thimmanna Ajila in 1604 AD. This single-rock idol is believed to be sculpted by Amarashilpi Jakanachari. The monolith idol of Lord Gomateshwara lies on the banks of Phalguni river.

This monolith statue is the smallest of the 4 Bahubali idols located in Karnataka (others being at Karkala, Dharmasthala and Sravanabelagola) and has a height of 35 feet. The unique feature about the Gomateshwara statue of Venur is that this idol stands on a raised platform without any support.
