From a Western point of view, fairly typical Hindu temple from the outside, but on the inside the enormous bull statue is pretty incredible.

Bull temple is situated atop a hill and was built in the 16th century. It houses one of the largest Nandi sculptures in the world that is carved from a single granite rock. It is open from 06:00 AM to 08:00 PM

If you are looking for a temple with loads of architecture this isn't the one to visit. It has one of the biggest bull statues in India. If you had visited temples in belur or hampi this will be a anti climax. But if you would like to have a Darshan please do visit.

A temple with a huge bull statue inside with a story that the stone statue is growing. The priest is very friendly. Nothing special.
