The area known as Bugle Hill is home to the Bull Temple, which
houses a black granite 16th-century statue of Shiva's sacred bull
coated in fresh lashings of coconut oil. Less pleasant on the nose
is the nearby Temple to Ganesh, that houses a statue of the deity
made from 100 kilograms of butter. Every four years the statue is
remade, and the (by that stage) rancid butter is distributed to
devotees. Very few westerners join the queue for a portion.
