It is very near to the Virupaksha temple. You can walk to it. A nice monolith bull. Great view! Be careful during the rainy season as the steps get very slippery.

This is one huge monolith bull facing the virupaksha temple. It is not maintained properly and you'll find the place to be little dirty even though it is right beside the police station.

Located just opposite Virupaksha temple, this monolithic sculpture has a mesmerizing view of the entire Hampi market area, giving a visualization that the bull is watching over the entire town.

Directly opposite to Virupaksha temple - a km away. View is very nice. As you come down from Matanga Hill, you can't miss this. View of Hampi Bazar from this place is awesome. This bull is a silent spectator of things happening around it.

The monolith bull is just opposite to the virupaksha temple. Climb more steps and the view is spectacular.
