“Huge Bull Stone!”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

Not a big place to visit but quite interesting to see the monkeys around the temple and experience the ceremony with the priest.

I went to this temple with my friend. It is located in Basvangudi. There were many devotees came to visit.

The Bull statue is quite huge, temple is very good. Person staying in Bangalore should definitely go there at least once.
