When to Visit Shravanabelagola
The best time to visit Shravanabelagola is in the winter months between October to March. One should avoid the summer months as the climb up the Vindhyagiri hill over rock cut steps has to be done on bare feet and the rocks would be scorching. Visiting during the Mahamastabhisheka is a rare opportunity to experience if one is able to brave the crowds.
