This is one huge monolith bull facing the virupaksha temple. It is not maintained properly and you'll find the place to be little dirty even though it is right beside the police station.

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!

This is a very large sculpture of Nandi, Lord Shivas vahana (vehicle) and gate keeper. Quite impressive. It is located about 1 km straight away from the Virupashka temple. The stroll will take you through the old bazaar. About half way there on the left,...More
