Shravanabelagola is a city located in the Hassan district of the Indian state of Karnataka. It is one of the most important Jain pilgrim centers.

In Kannada language, "Bel" means white and "kola", the pond - an allusion to the beautiful pond in the middle of the town. It reached a high point in architectural and sculptural activity under the patronage of the Gangas of Talakad.

There are two hills Chandragiri (Chikkabetta) and Vindyagiri. The last shruta-kevali Bhadrabah and his pupil Chandragupta (formerly the Maurya king) had meditated there.
