Nandi (also Nandin) is the sacred bull calf, gatekeeper, and vehicle (vahana) of the Hindu god Shiva. Sculptures of Nandi are a common sight at Hindu temples dedicated to his master, and he is partly responsible for the Hindu reverence for living bulls even today, especially in the state of Uttar Pradesh.Another story that revolves around Nandi is that Lord Shiva and the goddess Parvatiwere playing a game of dice where the faithful Nandi was the umpire. Partial to Lord Shiva, he decreed that the deity had won even though the goddess was the clear winner.The face of the tortoise should be towards the north.
