Venur is a small town in South Kanara District of Karnataka state situated on the bank of river Gurupur. Venur, though a small town was once a great seat and capital of Jainism in Karnataka. The main attraction of Venur is the Monolithic Statue (Single stone and Joint less structure) of Bhagawan Bahubali also known as Lord Gomateshwara.
