Second largest monolithic statue in India after Shravanbelagola statue. It looks like it is situated on the roadside but there is parking and entry into a gated complex. It is very close to the Veerebhadra Swamy temple and in fact you will see it first as you approach the temple from the Bengaluru Hyderabad highway.

The bull carved out of a single granite rock is magnificent in size and detail,

Be careful of the monkeys in the complex who will snatch any edibles out of your hands.

One big mystery at the Lepakshi temple is how the hanging piller was constructed or carved. While sixty-nine other pillars support the ceiling, one corner pillar does not touch the temple floor at all.

At 2-3 hours drive from Bangalore, the place is quite easy to reach via own vehicle. You have 3 locations to visit here, more or nearby.
1. The working Veerbhadra temple with the compound holding the bit older Nagalingam in this compound now. The old unfinished Siva/Parvathy marriage hall also is inside the compound. Car parking available which is basically on the back side of the temple. Rest rooms were under construction as of Jan 2023. Lot of shops available on the main entrance side . We can reach near as well by car, but is bit congested.
2. The Nandi statue, which is the largest monolithic Nandi in a different compound nearby (though in the very olden days should have been per of the Nagalingam present in the current Veeerabhadra temple compound . This one is under ASI and well maintained with no entrance fee. (Toilet facilities etc. available here)
3. The Jatayu park, a simple simple rock structure with a Jatayu statue on the top. One need to climb the iron steps to get to the top, may not be suitable for elders.

All places can be covered in couple of hours time leisurely. Did not find any decent hotels for breakfast/lunch. Choose winter season and early morning hours for pleasant trip.

A monolithic Nandi statue. Walkable distance from the Veerbhadraswamy Temple. Not to be missed when visiting Lepakshi

Veerabhadra Swamy temple was quite good.
Good sculptures. The temple should be publicised.
Jatayu Park was well maintained.
No good restaurants near temple.

The Nandi is huge, carved out in Sandstone and at a small distance ( less than 100 meters) from the Shiva temple. The symmetry of the bull is amazing, and though huge, is inspiring. The temple is also full of architectural marvels, though some parts of it is crumbling due to the age and being exposed to the elements. This temple also has a hanging pillar that is unsupported at the base, though which you can run a handkerchief. The carvings inside the sanctum are intricate and an ode to the temple art and architecture of the bygone times. Really worth a visit!!!

Visited Lepakshi Bull Statue enroute to Kurnool from Bangalore…..supposedly it’s the place where Jatayu fell after being attacked by Ravana as per Hindu mythology. There’s a statue of Jatayu/ bird on top of a hilltop; it’s relatively new …A bull statue is there …..which is of some significance, being older…not worth the effort for a detour

This is a huge statue of Nandi bull carved from sandstone, facing the Shiva statue in the main Veerabhadra temple in Lepakshi. This is also from Vijayanagara times. There is also a beautiful lotus pond on the complex. The park is cleanly maintained.

One of the biggest Nandi Bull statues in the world. Well maintained. Parking available. No entry fees. Beside the statue park, there is a good restaurant by Andhra Tourism. Road to this statute from the highway is a breeze.
