   The    Big    bull    temple    in    Basavanagudi    area    of
   Bengaluru      is    a    temple    dedicated    to  an  animal.
   Legend   says   that  a  rowdy  bull  ran  amok  destroying
   the  groundnut  crops  and  creating  huge  losses to  the
   farmers.   The   farmers  took  a  vow   to   build  a  temple
   dedicated  to  the  bull   and  prayed  that   their  crops  be
   saved.  As a miracle the bull was not heard of since then.  
   The  current  temple  was  then  built  to appease the bull. 
   Also  every  year  in  the  month  of  November a festival of
   groundnuts    and    sale    of    groundnuts    and   sweets
   prepared from groundnuts is held.
       One of the oldest temples in the heart of the city,
       Gavi Gangaadhareshwara temple is dedicated to

       This is a unique spectacle seen for a few minutes on
       this particular day only. Legends also say that  there is
       a tunnel path within the temple premises which leads
       directly to Kashi.
