Nice location and the temple and huge granite bull was stunning. The temple is not very big and does not take long to go round and there is not much else in the area. One good point is that although there are sellers of souvenirs outside they did not hassle anyone.

Very beautiful well maintained temple. The idol of Nandi is huge and delightful to look at. The temple is housed in a beautiful complex with trees which have bats hanging on them. There are lots of other temples in the vicinity as well plus the wonderful eats of Gandhi bazaar!

The temple is very near to Ramkrishna ashrama temple in the middle of Basavangudi. Infront of BMSCE and adjacent to Bugle rock park and Dodda Ganapati temple. Performed darshana many times, the temple shrine has a gigantic Nandi statue which is a treat for the eyes. Its also part of Bengaluru Darshana. Dont miss out to spend time at Bugle... More

This is an excellent temple. There are 2 temple next to each other. One is of Lord Ganesha and Another is Bull Temple (Nandi Temple). Both Temples are worth the visit and time spent. Bull temple is nice and calm place where you can sit and spend lot of time. Worth a visit!!

The Hanuman... More
