Dodda Basavana Gudi (The Bull Temple)
This remarkable temple is renowned for housing one of the largest Nandi (bull) statues in the world, measuring an astounding 15 feet in height. The exceptional feature of this temple lies in its imposing granite statue of the bull, intricately carved from a single rock.
The ambience of Dodda Basavana Gudi temple comes alive during the last Monday and Tuesday of the Hindu month of 'Karthika' when the Kadalekaye Parishe Festival, also known as the groundnut fair, is celebrated. Devotees offer groundnuts to the deity as part of the festival. This event further adds to the temple's prominence and makes it one of the most renowned temples in Bangalore.
