Apart from the world's tallest monolithic statue of Lord Bahubali there are a few other places of interest here. You could explore:

Chandragiri Hills: It is believed that during the third century BC, Sri Bhadrabahuswami, the last Srutakevali, stepped on Chandragiri and the hill was sanctified. Ever since, this has symbolised the abode of the Digambara Jaina Order. Chandragiri is an ageless hill of shrines, mantapas, monuments and pillars. It is also referred to as Chikka Betta, meaning Small Hill. According to the earliest epigraph, 700 saints have attained samadhi here.

Parsvanatha Basti: is one of the tallest granite structures. It houses a structure, which is the tallest in Shravanabelagola after the monolithic statue of Bahubali. It also has one of the two longest inscriptions in Shravanabelagola. Popularly called as the Kamatha Parsvanatha Basti, this probably came into existence during the end of 11 century. Parsvanatha stands on a lotus and is an excellent example for artistic mastery.

Manastambha: is one of the most popular and elegant free standing pillars in India. It is one of the finest pieces of art under Ganga workmanship. Manastamba is popularly referred to as Kuge Brahmadeva Pillar. This was erected in the honour of the Ganga King Manasimha. The 113- line inscription on the pedestal, gives a complete account of the king's heroic life and his pious end.

Bhadrabahu Cave: is known for its spiritual importance. All monuments except for two are housed in this cave. This is a natural cave where saint Bhadrabahu and his disciple Chandragupta Maurya (Mauryan Emperor) breathed their last during third century B.C. However, a devotee named Jinachandra, engraved the inscriptions here. This cave was later restructured and converted into a temple.
