The Bull Temple Bangalore

It is one of the oldest temples in Bangalore and is situated in Basavanagudi. Dedicated to Nandi, the mount of lord Shiva, the temple was built by Kempe Gowda again in the 16th century. The spellbinding granite monolithic deity in this temple, Nandi, draws devotees from all over the country. This 4.5m-tall and six-metre-long bull is supposed to be older than the temple housing it. It is believed that the source of the river Vishva Bharti originates at the feet of the statue.
Close by, on Temple Road in Basavangudi, is the Dodda Ganesha Temple which houses a similarly big Ganesh idol.
