What we like

The sense of spirituality in this temple is palpable and is not just a tourist attraction. The gigantic bull is majestic and equally mesmerizing. This is the biggest temple of Nandi in the world and it's magnificence is unmatched. There is a Ganesha temple at the foot of the hill and bi weekly fairs are organised that celebrate the temple's amazing history. It is ideal for a historical experience and spiritual rejuvenation.
