Located just opposite Virupaksha temple, this monolithic sculpture has a mesmerizing view of the entire Hampi market area, giving a visualization that the bull is watching over the entire town.

Directly opposite to Virupaksha temple - a km away. View is very nice. As you come down from Matanga Hill, you can't miss this. View of Hampi Bazar from this place is awesome. This bull is a silent spectator of things happening around it.

Monolithic bull is carved out of single stone and is massive in its scale.It seems locals still worship the bull as it was partially covered with cloth. It is quite enormous in size and will leave you awestruck!
