This Nandi has been sculpted from a singular granite rock... more and weighs almost 25 tons. Also, the dome of the temple rests on a single rock. The Sri Brihadeshwara Temple has a very impressive architecture. Adjacent to the Sri Brihadeshwara Temple there is a palace that was built by the Marathas and Nayaks and has a splendid masonry.
