Chamundi Hill Bull Statue, Mysuru (Mysore)
(3.8/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
A colossal 6x8 m (16x24 ft) statue carved out of a single boulder, Chamundi Hill Bull Statue sits hilltop overlooking the monumental 1,000-step staircase and Mysore. Carved in situ in the mid-17th century, the famous Nandi attracts devotees and tourists from across the world. Regarded as a vehicle of Lord Shiva, this impressive statue, standing at nearly 1,000 m (3,000 ft) altitude, has a small cave temple behind it painted with white and ochre stripes. You reach the foot of the hill from Mysore, some 13 km (8 mi) away. Chamundi Hill Bull Statue is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Mysuru (Mysore) Edition.

  • The true thing lies in its detail. Though the bull is at a distance from the temple, but anyone visiting the temple should see it. 
  • Took a bus from chamundi to nandi, its 10 min drive Nothing except the massive bull Few shops and eateries Good place for enjoying nature Buses available to rly station and bus stand 
  • A mist visit place if you are visiting chamundi hill. During dasara the Illuminate the place. The welcome light display on hill we see from far away is see n rite next to nandi
