Good devotional place with less crowd

I went with my family and , the place was serene, no commercialization. got enough time to visit all temples inside. Parking is a big concern. Nice place to visit occasionally.

A nice place to visit, not very big so only a quick visit. Lots of stalls to visit and some nice places to eat lunch near by.

This one and a nearby doodha ganpati temple are a must see for people who are not conversant with south style temple. The black stone gigantic statue of nandi bull is kind of its own.

I didn't find anything special there. It is a normal temple. There is big nandi statue. There is nothing to highlight it as a tourist spot.

Nice temple with a big statue of Nandi... There are many other near by temples which can also be visited. A fair place to visit over all. May wish to visit again with my family. Only religious people can visit the place for worship...

Went there many a times, just for showing my elderly parents the Big Bull. But that's the main attraction it has, cant spend much time around the place also, as rest all are very small idols kept and worshiped. Its just a normal temple like any other apart from the big Bull for worship.

This very old temple is a big attraction for its huge statue of the bull - of Lord Shiva .Ideally situated next to the Ganapati temple , and the nearby Ramakrishna Mission within walking distance is the hub of tourists . Worth going and walking around the old charming neighborhood .

This is like any other temple. The only difference is that it has a large Bull for worship. It is basically a Shiv temple
