These Ceremonial sculptures are traditionally used on the front of hundreds of chariots which are paraded around the temple during the festival.
As per Hindu mythology, the Nandi or the bull is the vehicle of Hindu god - Lord Shiva, the bearer of truth and righteousness. God of skies & destruction, Shiva with Nandi is one of the oldest forms of Hindu representation - dating before 3000 BC.
