Bull Temple - Review
Dedicated to Nandi Bull, the Bull Temple is also known as 'Dodda Basavana Gudi'. A colossal granite statue is the highlight of this temple. Situated inside a park called Bugle Rock, this is one of the more popular temples in all of Bengaluru. Said to be the biggest Nandi temple in the world, the stone cut image of Nandi is continually covered with new layers of butter, known as benne in the local language of Kannada.
This temple flaunts the Dravidian style architecture and is the site where the groundnut festivals take place in November/December. Combine your visit to the Bull Temple with a quick stroll through the Bugle Rock Park or Gandhi Bazaar. Heading towards Lalbagh after this isn’t a bad idea as well. The place is about 1 km away is the cave temple of Gavi Gangadeshwara Temple. Here’s a word of advice for the Bull Temple visitors, ‘Beware of touts!’ Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bengaluru itinerary 5 days.

Bull Temple, Bengaluru Reviews
We went early in the morning on Saturday. We were guided on where to enter and what to do was we moved around the bull. It's a quick stop. Also had fresh coconut water while we waited for our driver to come back and pick us up since there wasn't any parking in the area.
Heard a lot about this temple and finally got a chance to visit there. Very devotional place and very well maintained. And location is just between the greenery, is making it more beautiful. Feel so positive. Neat and clean, recommended for family and kids.
