The Nandi Temple is dedicated to Shiva’s vehicle Nandi and is situated directly in front of the Shiva Temple. At the center of the inner chamber of this temple is its principal statue, Nandi. The Dewa Surya statue, which is shown in the image, is on the right side of Nandi, and the Dewa Chandra (Moon God) statue is on the left side of Nandi. These three statues symbolize the constant watch of Shiva by his vehicle Nandi, and the celestial objects, Sun and Moon.
