Bull Temple Bangalore :
The Bull Temple, otherwise called Nandi Temple, is one of the most established sanctuaries in the city of Bengaluru. The sanctuary is prominently called as ‘Dodda Basavana Gudi’ by local people and is the greatest sanctuary devoted to Nandi on the planet. Nandi, the bull, is the mount or ‘vahana’ of Lord Shiva and the gatekeeper god of Lord Shiva’s house; as per Hindu conventions. This sanctuary is each Shiva lover’s must-visit goal in light of the fact that Nandi holds extraordinary significance to Lord Shiva.
The building style of the Bull Temple is for the most part Dravidian and was built by Kempe Gowda. It is accepted that the starting point of the waterway Vrishabhavati is at the feet of Nandi. The whole model of the bull is cut out of one single stone shake. The statue is 4.5 meters high and 6.5 meters long. Coconut oil, spread and ‘benne’ are consistently connected to this statue. This had prompted the initially dim statue to turn dark.
On the premises of the Bull Temple, there is additionally a lovely sanctuary of Ganesh, the darling child of Lord Shiva. A fascinating reality about this sanctuary is that the statue of Lord Ganesh is made completely of margarine! It takes around 110 kilos of spread to make this creative statue, and another statue is made like clockwork. What is truly amazing and significant is that in the four-year residency of each margarine mold, the spread doesn’t dissolve or change shape even once. The margarine that makes the statue of the god is then dispersed to the enthusiasts as prasad.
