Approximately halfway up the stairs is an enormous statue of a bull named Nandi, carved out of a single piece of black granite. From here, one is rewarded with a panoramic view of the city that includes the Mysore Palace, the Karanji Lake, and several smaller temples.
The temple has a quadrangular structure and its main feature is a statue bearing a sword in his right hand and a cobra in the left that represents a character from Hindu mythology. Worshipers at the temple hold the belief that the yogic posture of the presiding deity, if mastered, will provide a seeker an extra-dimensional view of the universe.
