Day 1

As an architectural student I always wanted to explore the local culture and traditions of a place. We are in puttaparthi now and my grandpa suggested to visit lepakshi. We took 8:30am bus from puttaparthi and reached lepakshi around 10:00 am. We first explored the rich architecture of veerabhadra temple and later visited Lepakshi Nandi. The sculpture still feels like it's freshly cut out of stone and it's a magnum opus.

Nostalgic photo as we had a photo of this in our childhood textbooks
