21 st generation is too fast and now a days most of the people from my generation don’t believe in goa and it’s positive energy. but when you read the “holy places that must be visited in Karnataka” you may realise how these are important.
Many of us might have noticed that when we visit temples, church or masjid, we feel relaxed and also some sort of happiness.

Shravanabelagola is a Jain pilgrimage site since it is home to one of the most important sites, which is the Gommateshwara Statue. This huge monolithic statue is of a fearsome height of 57 ft, set on the Vindhyagiri Hill.
A major attraction of the statue is the Mahamastakabhisheka, which is a grand festival held every once 12 years. During this time, the statue of Gommateshwara is bathed with saffron, ghee, milk, etc. in order to keep it fresh.

The Kukke Subramanya Temple is located in the Western Ghats range of Karnataka. Overlooking the temple is the famous mountain of Kumara Parvatha, a popular hiking destination for trekkers from across South India.
Sarpa Samskara/Sarpa Dosha is one of the poojas performed at Kukke Subramanya Temple by devotees to get rid of the sarpa dosha. This is because the pooja involves rituals similar to the ones done in performing shrartham (death rites). Sarpa Samskara seva devotees are required to stay for two days.
