    Atop a boulder-strewn hill in Karnataka is the world’s highest free-standing statue – the colossus of Lord Gommateshvara. Completed in 981 CE, this monolithic figure celebrated its 1000th anniversary in 1981. To commemorate the event Marg published this volume which focuses on the story of Bahubali and the creation of the colossus at this ancient Jain pilgrimage site. Other articles narrate the sculptural, architectural, and artistic treasures at Shravana Belgola, the great centre of Jain culture in the Deccan.
