Temple of Lord Bahubali in Shravanabelagola looked majestic from the road as our ride approached the gates.
When in vehicle one imagines all the wonderful sights one will be witnessing inside the premises. And God bless the wonderful photos pasted all over Google which motivates you to visit them in the first place.
But it is one LONG LONG ride up the stairs which our ancestors built to test us. "Who's idea was this?" One asked.
I had no idea to be honest.
The sheer number of the steps was intimidating.
50 steps and I thought I'll faint and roll down.
At 75th my world went round.
100th and I was sure I'll drop dead.
But watching a granny prancing happily up the stairs inspired me to complete what I had started.
