Bull temple is also referred to as a Nandi temple. Temple is situated in basawanagudi area. Idol of Nandi is carved out of a black granite, and it is believed that this is the oldest and biggest idol of Nandi anywhere in the world. This temple is near to doda Ganesha temple. However cleanliness is lacking in surrounding area.

Temple dedicated to Nandi, the bull. The bull is carved from a large piece go black granite. No entrance charge but they request a donation. Its a shame that it is also revered to the extent that they don't let you even take photos inside, yet on the walk up to it, it looks like a rubbish tip! Interesting 10 min visit, but wouldn't advise going too far out of your way to see it!

This temple is well hidden and you have quite a climb to approach it. Highly decorated, but you are not allowed to take photos inside
