Itinerary

Lepakshi Nandi

Nandi statue is another famous site in Lepakshi. Nandi (mostly represented as a bull) is a vehicle of Lord Shiva.  Lepakshi Nandi is the biggest in India (in the world as well). It is believed that this Nandi statue was carved out of a single granite. It is another architectural wonder of Lepakshi.

Jatayu

Jatayu (bird) fell in a battle with Ravana (demon in Hindu mythology). Jatayu fell in the attempt to save Sita (wife of Lord Rama) from Ravana who captured her. Lord Rama, on the way to find his wife, saw Jatayu wounded from his battle and commanded it to rise. Le Pakshi literally means “rise, bird” in Telugu (the language spoken in the state of Andhra Pradesh).

Nandhi Hills

Nandi Hill is a small hill town which houses a fortress. It is at an altitude of appx. 1500 Mtrs and thus has very salubrious climate all the year round. The fortress is in itself undergoing renovation and being readied for the modern day traveller with food courts and other facilities. On account of the weather, it was the summer capital of Tipu Sultan the then ruler of the erstwhile Mysore province. Tipu’s drop is another interesting point, where in the condemned prisoners were either pushed to or thrown to death. There are other tourist spots like the horse way, secret escape route etc… Incidentally, the place also keeps a botanist intrigued with the local flora too.
