The temple is old and nice. The stone park is great. Monsoon time the entire place needs maintenance to avoid accidents.

Loved this little temple. It was built in the 16th century and is dedicated to the demi-god Nandi. Has a huge statue of a bull decorated by flower garlands as offerings.

The temple is clean and neat. However, there is a cartel of vendors including the vendor selling the frames as well as the vendor for the chappals. They try to fleece you at every step and charge exorbitantly. Parking is a big issue. Avoid visiting...More

Visited on 12 Aug 2017 with friends. Small place. There's nothing much to see. You can take photograph of bull statue only. You have to remove your shoes in order to go inside the temple.

I visited this temple because it is the closest temple to my hotel. It is a tiny place, good to see, but it takes less than a minute to walk thought it. The park behind it is a nice place to chill.

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.
