Just situated adjacent to the Lord Ganesh temple in same compound is this mighty Bull temple with the biggest Nandi in the world made of rock stone. It's impossible to get a full picture in one frame!!

Though it's small temple but very old temple, stone carving work is marvelous, the bull is the most attractive made with large stone.

Local temple, quite famous. Many locals visiting and being blessed by the attendants, including blessing of cars and motor cycles. A real spot, not touristy, and unfortunately no interpretive information. But fascinating to observe the variety of worship.

This temple is from where one of the oldest areas of bangalore basavangudi derives its names from. The nandi is huge and it is a very peaceful temple.

A relatively small temple going back hundreds of years tucked into a busy city area. This place is covered in standard as part of all Bangalore darshan packages and on top of most recommended places to visit in Bangalore.

This is one of the beautiful temple with great architectural master piece. The main "Bull" is carved on a single stone - beautiful. Excellent temple.

It's a nice temple and the priest was so kind and walked us through it. But all there is, is a big statue of a bull. I feel like if you go during a festival it's great but otherwise there really isn't much there.
