Bull Temple Bangalore: Religious and Sacred Place

After I reached Bangalore my first and foremost wish was to visit the Bull Temple Bangalore. I love the beautiful creations of the past like the temples and forts as they were built in a very delicate manner. I never miss a chance to visit such a place so I packed my things and then settled in the cab which I hired from the airport. It took some time to reach the place and during that small duration, I was a little excited to see how the place really looked like.

After I finally reached the place, I was completely amazed to see such a marvelous sight in front of my eyes. It is one of the oldest temples in India and has been created in a different and unique style. The style which has been used to create such a thrilling monument is the Dravidian style which is one of the finest and most popular styles in India. The temple has a vast image of the Lord Nandi which memorializes Lord Shiva. The bull has been carved out of a single stone and is also called the bull which is monolithic. Many historians and the architects believe that the bull is older than the temple.

Inside the huge temple, an idol of even Lord Ganesha is present which is made out of pure butter and took four years for completion. The most astonishing fact is that the idol which is made of butter never melts. So some portions of the idol are broken into fragments and spread among the disciples and devotees. The temple is even popular for the festivals which are organized and celebrated every year. It is known as the Groundnut Fair where the agriculturalists offer their firstly grown harvest to the Lord Nandi. The temple along with the large idols attracts people and tourists from all corners of the world.

"Hi there, my name is Lalit Chandran. I currently reside in ‘Pink city’ i.e. Jaipur where I run a garment export business. Having spent all my childhood in Rajasthan, I fell in love with Indian history and all its glory. So, whenever I get an opportunity, I travel to various places all across India exploring old cities, museums, forts and historic monuments. This blog will catalogue all the places I have visited, people I have met along the way and different cultures I got a chance to experience.

I am hoping sharing all my adventures will help raise awareness about our ancient heritage and maybe help preserve and protect these remnants  of India’s glorious past. Feel free to leave your comments. "
