    Nandi Bull

    by grets Written Dec 15, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Halfway down Chamundi Hill is Nandi the bull, Lord Shiva's vehicle. It is quite an impressive sculpture, five metres high and carbed from a single piece of black granite in 1659. Legend claims that the it was built in a single night. It is the third largest Nandi in India.

    There were a group of these pilgroms here when we arrived and I felt a little uncomfortable about taking photos until they actually beckoned me to do so.
