Architectural marvel
Sep 2021
The Nandi is huge, carved out in Sandstone and at a small distance ( less than 100 meters) from the Shiva temple. The symmetry of the bull is amazing, and though huge, is inspiring. The temple is also full of architectural marvels, though some parts of it is crumbling due to the age and being exposed to the elements. This temple also has a hanging pillar that is unsupported at the base, though which you can run a handkerchief. The carvings inside the sanctum are intricate and an ode to the temple art and architecture of the bygone times. Really worth a visit!!!

Not worth the effort
Sep 2021 • Solo
Visited Lepakshi Bull Statue enroute to Kurnool from Bangalore…..supposedly it’s the place where Jatayu fell after being attacked by Ravana as per Hindu mythology. There’s a statue of Jatayu/ bird on top of a hilltop; it’s relatively new …A bull statue is there …..which is of some significance, being older…not worth the effort for a detour

A huge statue of Nandi bull facing Lepakshi Shiva temple
Sep 2021
This is a huge statue of Nandi bull carved from sandstone, facing the Shiva statue in the main Veerabhadra temple in Lepakshi. This is also from Vijayanagara times. There is also a beautiful lotus pond on the complex. The park is cleanly maintained.

Wonderful Architecture

One of the biggest Nandi Bull statues in the world. Well maintained. Parking available. No entry fees. Beside the statue park, there is a good restaurant by Andhra Tourism. Road to this statute from the highway is a breeze.

Veerapuram bird sanctuary
Feb 2021
This time once again i went to veerapuram bird sanctaury which is around 14km from bagepalli busstand.I hired an auto for 350 and went in the route of yellode.From the main road we need to ride for 1 km at the sign board.This time no birds at veerapuram village but villagers suggested us to go to venkatapuram which is 1km away as lot of birds nested on the trees there.We headed towards venkatapuram village and observed lot of painted storks on the trees which are busy in building nests for breeding.I roamed around the village and saw lot of painted storks on the trees and there is a lake near to these trees where you can find other category of birds like open bill stork,ibis,different kinds of ducks etc.On the whole it is very nice experience for me to visit this bird sanctuary

Jan 2020
very good place to visit for seeing the architecture. the Shivalinga with hooded 5 head snake over it made on one stone is a marvelous thing. only challenge what i see is the limited number of hotels available in the area to dine. roads are good. best time to travel is October to december/ January.

A Day trip to Lepakshi from Bangalore
Oct 2019
A tiny village but a magnificent place. A must visit. The Veerabhadra swami temple where all the attractions are there is a must visit to learn about India's rich cultural heritage. The monkeys and dogs is a bit of a menace outside the temple - but - tolerable.
