There is an existence of a fascinating story of Nandi the bull that is described in many religious books as well.

One of the most prominent characters inculcated in the Hindu mythologies, Nandi is introduced as Kashyapa and Surabhi’s son. Nandi is seen in different depictions as on one place, it might be represented as a half human and half bull while in some other way it is depicted as a sitting bull with folded limbs. It is really noteworthy that Nandi was not born as a bull but as a normal human. He was raised with great affection and knowledge and by the age of 7, he had plenty of knowledge about the each and every scripture as well as the holy texts. One day, Varuna and Mitra arrived at his residence with an intention blessing him, however they told that he has a very small life and would die by the age of 8 years. Getting to know about this and seeing his father in pain due to it, he started worshipping Lord Shiva with all his attention and ardency. Getting happy and satisfied with his praying, Shiva gave a piece of necklace along with a bell to Nandi that transformed him into a ‘half bull and half human’. Not only this, but he also allowed him to be his vehicle and honoured Nandi with immortality. It is said that Nandi the bull is a hub of powers, head of the Ganas, provider of boons, a true symbol of honour, justice, faith, wisdom, virility and lastly not to forget the protector of Dharma.

While being indulged in Kailash Manasarovar Yatra, the devotees have to pass through ‘Nandi Inner Kora’ in which they will be having an experience of the pious Nandi Parvat, Astaparbat (Ashtapada), Kailashi Gange, Kuber Kunda, Dakshinmurti Shivalaya, AstamatrikaganParbat, Atmalingam and the most important Saptrishi caves.
