The first place we visited in Karkala was Chaturmukha Basadi.
The Bahubali statue is on the peak of a hill. It was erected by the king Verapandya in 1432 AD.
The statue measuring 42 feet is one of the three main Bahubali statues in Karnataka. The other two statues are in Sravanabelagola and Venur.
From the hill, one can view the lake Ramasamudra surrounded by greenery.
