Hampi Statue – Monolith Nandi
At the other end of Hampi Bazaar is a monolithic Nandi statue and shrine. The bull is locally known as Yeduru Basavanna, ride of Lord Shiva. This is also the location of the Vijaya Utsava , the annual festival of Hampi. Next to the statue , the stairs take you to the Achyutaraya temple.
