While this isn't the largest or most ornate temple, it's built around a giant bull statue and is a nice place to visit.

Bring a book and a friend. You will be able to read in peace. The silence is comforting. My friend is a devotee and suggested that we visit this place. Very picturesque place indeed.

The Bull temple is dedicated to Nandi, the vehicle of Lord Shiva. The Nandi here is a really big one unlike in most temples. Next to the temple lies a beautiful park that reminds you of an age old cave with its strong smell and plethora of bats!
