Sunsets in country side can be truly mesmerising to an urban. Engulfed by concrete landscape and hazy atmosphere due to air pollution... we deprive ourselves the very essence that nature gifted to us.... #whitesandshades #sudheeryedla #sunsets #lepakshi #andhrapradesh #longdrive #iphonex #iphonephotography

The Veerabhadra temple is in Lepakshi in the #Anantapur district of the Indian state of #Andhra Pradesh. Built in the 16th century, the architectural features of the temple are in the #Vijayanagara style with profusion of carvings and paintings at almost every exposed surface of the temple. It is one of the centrally protected monumemts of national importance. The #fresco #paintings are particularly detailed in very bright dresses and #colours with scenes of Rama and Krishnafrom the epic stories of the Ramayana, the Mahabharata and the Puranas and they are well preserved. There is a very large Nandi(bull), mount of Shiva, about 200 metres (660 ft) away from the temple which is carved from a single block of #stone, which is said to be one of the largest of its type in the world.

Lepakshi Nandi
.
.
Lepakshi Nandi (Bull) is one of the main attractions in Lepakshi and a well-known landmark for the tourism of Lepakshi. It was built during Vijayanagara period when the main Veerabhadra Temple was built.

The Lepakshi Nandi is made out of single granite. The monolithic Nandi sculpture is said to be the second largest monolithic structure in India after Gomateshwara in Shravanabelagola. It is 20 feet in height and 30 feet in length. The Nandi statue is decorated with a necklace, muvvalahara, a bell chain with small horns.

It is noticeable that the head of the bull is held aloft at a higher angle than usual. In addition, the expression of submission, which is typical of Nandi before Shiva, is not seen in the statue here.
