Nandi

Nandi. The bull vehicle of the god Śiva. His image often has a shrine of its own at the entrance to temples dedicated to Śiva. The bull image is usually shown kneeling, facing the temple entrance, implying that Nandi gazes always at his Lord. Because of this his expression is gentle and smiling, full of joy at being in the presence of Śiva.
