Just when I was getting tired of peeking out of window and preparing myself to drift into restful slumber, our government-run KSTDC(Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation) tour bus passed through a narrow pass-way in middle of two rocky mountains and halted with a thud. It was so different, the aura of this place. Instead of people swarming tensely or local vendors howling irritatingly, the place was unusually calm. This Place was small. This Place was beautiful. This place was Shravanabelagola (158 Km from Bengaluru, Karnataka).
