Bull statue outside Mahakala Temple

This statue of Nandi the Bull adorns the entrance to the Mahakala Temple.

Contrary to popular misconception, there is nothing in Indian scriptures about cows being holy - cows were sought-after in ancient times because of their usefulness (a live cow has more utility than a dead one); over time, that became fossilized into the current belief.
