Nandi is Shiva’s closest supporter because he is the spirit of receptivity. Before you go into a temple, you must have the place of Nandi – to fully sit. Nandi (also Nandin) is the divine bull calf, guard, and vehicle (vahana) of the Hindu god Shiva. Statues of Nandi are a familiar sight at Hindu temples devoted to his master, and he is partly liable for the Hindu worship for existing bulls even today, uniquely in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
The respect displayed to the bull in modern India is somewhat because of his connection with Shiva. In Hindu towns such as Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh state, some bulls are given the freedom to wander the streets. They are thought to belong to the god, and they are marked on the flank with the trident symbol of Shiva.
Nandi is the son of Kasyapa and Surabhi, according to the Vayu Purana. His function as Shiva’s protector is depicted in the Saura Purana Nandi as ‘decorated with all ornaments, gleaming like a thousand stars, clutching a trident in his hand, three-eyed, adorned with a sliver of the moon, a thunderbolt in his palm, four-armed, like a second Sankara [Shiva]’.
Nandi is Shiva’s carrier as well as the leader of the god’s ganas, or friends, and as a result, he frequently bears a golden team of office. Shiva’s additional tasks include protecting all quadrupeds and providing music while performing the tandava, or cosmic dance of creation.
Most Hindu temples devoted to Shiva, notably Dravida (Southern) temples, have a sculpture of the Wooden Nandi Statue as a bull seated on a pedestal in front of them. He is enshrined in a Nandi mandapa, a dedicated columned structure where he gazes in devotion at Shiva’s linga within the main temple. Worshippers frequently adorn the bull with bells, clappers, and floral decorations.
Shiva can take the form of a bull, known as Nandi-Kesvara, in Javanese temples, and he often stands guard with a trident in one hand and a lotus flower in the other. Nandi is frequently depicted in Hindu paintings as being ridden by Shiva and having pure white skin. He also arrives with Shiva on 1st-2nd century CE gold coins minted by the Kushanas in Gandhara.
