  • Let us down the mountain and we climbed the 1,000 escalines to the temple. The ascent becomes heavy, especially because we went at noon but it is nice. In total it took us 45 minutes to climb stopping to see the sights and visit the bull statue

  • Good sculpture of the bull and quiet temple. You get to take the stairs up from the foot of Chamundi hills to reach here.  more »
  • This 5m high Nandi Bull from a single granite block carved is very impressive and is halfway to the Chamundi Hill.
