Photographer's Note

Devotees pour Turmeric paste on the head of the 58.8 foot monolith of Gomateshwara on the Vindhyagiri hill as the part of the Mahamastavisheka (head anointing ceremony) ceremony in Shravanabelagola. Thousands of Jain devotees attended the Mahamastavisheka. This function held once every 12 years for the 1800 year old statue of Jain sage Gomateswara (Lord Bahubali).
I hope I got the info right. If there is any mistake, addition/alteration required please do not hesitate to point that out.
