Bull Temple, One of the oldest and beautiful temple in Bangalore, This is almost 400+ years old temple built during the time of Kempe Gowda the founder of Bangalore.
As the name says Bull, the temple is dedicated to Bull/Nandhi/Basava the mount of Lord Shiva, The Bull/Basava measures 15 feet tall,20 feet long and also the name for the locality “Basavanagudi” has come from this temple [In kannada Basava=Bull,Gudi=Temple).

[Main attraction of the temple Bull/Nandhi]
Behind the Bull inside the temple there is a small Shiva mandira,Usually(to my limited knowledge) Bull/Nandhi faces towards Shiva in all the temples but here it is otherway,Do someone have a explanation to this ?
Bull temple is also considered as “Protected Ancient Monument”.
Overall visiting a Bull temple is a great experience.
