Shravanabelagola, a small town, administered by the village panchayat has gained the luster of a semi urban civilization by virtue of itself being a pilgrim place for the Jains and a tourist destination. It is well equipped with good accommodation facilities with as many as 28 guest houses to accommodate around 2000 visitors per day. With the mahamasthakabhisheka fast approaching the Jain Mutt and the Government of Karnataka have taken up the construction of five more guest houses. Nearly 90% of these guest houses would be occupied by the donors during the event and the remaining percentage being reserved for dignitaries. Hence the tourists and pilgrims visiting Shravanabelagola during the event will have to rely on the temporary accommodation provided by the accommodation sub committee.
