The stone idol of Nandi is The Lepakshi temple which is also known as Veerabhadra temple, 1200 meters west from here.
There is a huge statue of Nandi on the other side of the road. Just in front of the idol of Jatayu bird. Which is made by cutting a single stone. There is no bigger stone statue in the world than this. This statue, 27 feet long and 15 feet wide, is sitting in the middle of a garden with Nandi facing the temple. The garden is very big which is like a park. This is a unique specimen of architecture. The garden is great for spending time and taking a walk in the glory.
