  • This beautiful enormous stone Nandi bull statue has exquisite detailed carvings. The gardened area around it is nicely kept. We rode our motorcycles up from Bangalore and arrived in a couple of hours. The road off the main highway is very pleasant. We had a very simple but delicious luncheon next door at the tourist facility, the only place to eat in town. About 5 minutes' walk away is the Lepakshi Temple, which is absolutely magnificent.
  • Amazing architecture.... During summers one should visit between 4 to 6 in the evenings.. The setting sun provides great photo ops
  • Religious place. Maintained very clean. And lot of tourist people. Near by to hindupur town. You can stay in town and visit this place.
  • From Bangalore around 150km. Early morning 6 to 9 is the best time to visit, after that it will be too hot..Nandhi Sculptured in single rock!! Well maintained... roads where good on 06/01/2017
